My DD2 has a very very common first name (in fact, as much as I love the name, I am starting to regret it, it is literally heard everywhere we go. Something I didn't realise when we chose her name).
She is starting kinder next year and I believe there are at least 2 other children who will be in her class with the same name and they usually call the child by their first name and last initial.
I don't want my DD to be known by her first name and last initial, but instead I want her to be know by her first and middle names. Eg: instead of being called Bella K, I would rather that they called her Bella Kate (not her real name, but her middle name and last name do start with the same letter).
Do you think I could "insist" in the nicest possible way on this? Would it be worth writing on her kinder forms that she is known as Bella Kate so they call her that right from the start? Or do I just suck it up and have her stuck with being called Bella K for her entire schooling?
