    Default Initials E.T. - problem or not?

    So I'm loving the name Elliott for a boy, but this would mean that he would have the initials E.T.

    Does this turn you off? Would it even be on the radar for his generation?

    Nope, I don't think many would make the connection and even if they do it's not a 'bad' thing. E.T was an awesome movie.

    DHs initials are ET. Hasn't been a problem for him although he did get given an ET toy when he was younger

    Haha these are my initials of first and surname. I hadn't even thought about it being connected to ET lol.

    Don't think it would be a problem for your DS

    Naw. Most kids that grow up with an E.T honestly wouldn't have seen the movie. It'll be 'too old' by that time for kids to bother with for the most part. I wouldn't worry about it

    Nope i wouldn't worry By the time he's grown up, ET will well and truly be vintage!

    We have Elliot Tennyson picked as one of our names, so we'd have an ET then our surname.
