Our school actually advises this at orientation. Thanks for making it more widely known OP.
Our school embroiders the name on the hat before they will even give it to you. And on the jumpers as well. But they do it in the same colour as the hat so to see it you have to peer pretty closely. Oh, it's just the surname as well!
Our school has a white paint pen that write the name on the inside crown. It works fantastic.
I'm not going to worry about it. My kids have more of a chance of someone finding out their name by listening to me scream at them or her friends call out to her. No code word either as she would just tell everyone.
Personally I feel the risk is too small to stress about, I know that others feel differently, but that's my opinion.
My kids have personalised beach towels - what a godsend! No lost towels in over a year!
