A good and interesting question. I'd say that the Dr. Jekyll represents that socially acceptable personality. He is who Jekyll was raised to be. Hyde, by contrast, represents the side, not just of Jekyll but of humanity, that is denied. This means evil, of course, but it also means rude behavior, and simply animal behavior, without the restraints of civilization.
