    Dd1 and I have the exact same initials. 2 of our ds's have the same first and last initial but different middle ones.
    Mail can be fun.

    Yep I considered it with both my Bubs. My initials were fine until I married and they are now a bit of a running joke as they make a rude word! I'm having a girl now and I also have taken into consideration what could happen to her initials if she gets married. I wouldn't worry about SAW though.....even if it's a girls initials I can't see that changing to anything horrible if she ever married and changed her surname :-)

    My DS is SAW and not only that his first name has a forest meaning and last name has 'wood' in it. I love it that his initials carry the theme! Destined to be a logger or a tree hugger πŸ˜‚

    I wouldn't be worried about SAW initials. My sons name is Sawyer and he gets called Saw frequently and no one thinks anything of it.

    This was a big issue for us. Top choice DS' middle name was a M name, and he'd have been BMW... We also had several A names we liked, but I didn't like BAW either.

    We opted for a different family name, and now he's BNW.

    I went to high school with a girl who was LSD, and while people joked about it, it wasn't a big deal.

    I didn't. However DS2 initials ended up being XO. Which I think is kind of cute.

    Wow to be honest we never ever thought about this! But reading this thread reminded me of when I was at school as a kid and these things were such a big deal!
    Thankfully dd's initials aren't bad!!
