    Default Baby initials

    Do you consider the child's full initials when picking names?
    Eg first name starts with S, surname W and all the middle names I seem to love start with A = SAW 😕

    I did with my DS. I also always make little words out of people's initials automatically when I know their full name.

    I honestly think you only need to worry about initials like DIK, CNT, VAG, TIT, CLT, COK, FUK etc. Sorry, you probably got the idea but it was a fun game!

    SAW wouldn't get a second glance from me, fwiw...

    My DD initials are ALE. We didn't even think about it until my Mum pointed it out when she came to visit us in hospital 😂. She had a bit of a giggle but we don't care. My DH even calls her ALE now sometimes as a joke. If it's a name you love and the initials are not offensive, as above, I wouldn't be put off.

    Only thing I wish we had considered better is not having 2 member with the same initials.

    I used to work with a guy whose initials were VAG. He used it as his email signature. He was quite straight laced so not sure if he got it or secretly thought it was funny..?

    Yes, I would consider initials when choosing a name as to avoid combos like harvs mentioned.

    Nothing wrong with SAW.

    We have a JH and a HJ. BIL is DG and his son is GD. It gets a bit confusing when the mail arrives.
