Re: would she get teased? (baby name question)

Jack's initials are JIL. I kind of felt the same way you seem to about it, but I loved the name, so I went with it.

Re: would she get teased? (baby name question)

hehe...My DDs initials are HAG so *shrugs* Personally I say go with what you like...now the thing to worry about is the actual first name. That's the one most kids will pick up on and most kids won't know all 3 initials anyway. So I say go with what you like. ^_^

Re: would she get teased? (baby name question)

Most people don't put two and two together when it comes to initials. Growing up my initials were AMY. Only one person who was a very close friend actually realized my initials spelled another name. I was made fun of more for my last name than anything else. My maiden name meant 'young boy' but it was a very obscure word so it was always used in our standardized tests. During every test I always heard the snickers whenever my last name came up meaning 'young boy'.

My initials are JRK and only my brothers called me "jerk" because of it...nobody else noticed unless I brought it up.

Re: would she get teased? (baby name question)

I am having this same dilemma, as if this one's a boy I really love the name Austin Ryan, but our last name begins with F, so that would make his initials ARF.

Re: would she get teased? (baby name question)

it can go with my dd's M.S.G I really worried about this before she was born, but I LOVED the names that we had choosen and I couldn'd imagine changing one of the names..She is almost 5 and as of now, only a few family members have even realized it!

Re: would she get teased? (baby name question)

Growing up my initials were E.L.F. and I never got teased. I did however get teased for my lastname though. But it didn't leave any scars on me. I'm healthy and confident.
