    Thanks, I did google. I'm 36 years old and can definitely say that I've never heard of it being called that before, and I've given quite a few in my life

    Oh ooops...i didnt even think of this!

    The sex of ours is a surprise and the boys name we have picked is Beau Joseph...I was thinking he'd be called BJ for short thinking it was cool!

    Honestly if people/kids are the type to tease or bully over the initials of a name... they will always find something else to pick on. I don't think this would really enter into it for me if I really liked a name. Well... maybe A.S.S.

    My brother's initials are BJ and he has never been teased for it. He gets called BJ as well, not in a mean way.

    DP is a BJ. We laugh about it occasionally, but I don't think many people really comment on it. That's first and middle name. Take the middle initial away and he's BS, which I laugh about too, but from what he's said, nobody else has every really mentioned that before.

    My brother is BAD and my Dad is ABCD. Brother loves his initials, Dad doesn't mind his either.

    Mine aren't at all special or amusing, and I don't care much either. Unless it ended up as SL.U.T or something like that, then I don't think it matters too much.

    Wouldn't do it. But I notice other people's initials (I have a mind that plays with words too much!)

    I went to school with a Barbara-jean and she got BJ. Never teased about it though I didn't know there was a "meaning" for BJ and I'm not sure others did either.
