How important are initials to you?

Would you give a girl the initials J-R-K ?

I am worried it sounds like Jerk....

The R is for a family member, so I love it as a middle name, not so much for a first name. The J is just a name I love, no meaning.

Re: Initials

I honestly didn't make the connection until I read further into your post. I don't see it being that big of a deal. How ofter will your DC actually have their initials printed out like that - kwim?

Re: Initials

as long as it is nothing extremely offensive, i don't think it's bad. my childhood best friend has the initials KKK, and she HATES that. If we were having a Chat Icon, his initials would have been RIB; we both thought it was kind of funny. Our Chat Icon--if you don't count the middle name--will have the initials RB, which kind of reminds me of Arby's. Oh well, she'll live.

Re: Initials

I don't think J-R-K is bad at all. I knew two people growing up with the initials A-S-S -- I thought that was pretty bad planning on their babies part.

Our LO's initials are going to be MRF... I am already calling her my little smurf... Chat Icon

Re: Initials

I don't care about initials, I never have. Mine is CJ which could be a cute nickname but I never went for it. I don't feel like initials would change my love (or hate) for a name.

As of right now with the 2 names I've narrowed down for Chat Icon she'll either have the initials JJJ or EJJ. And actually, this is the first time I've even THOUGHT about that. lol.

Re: Initials

We decided against a first name for DC#1 with the letter B because his initials would have been BO Chat Icon

I couldn't do that to him...

I don't think the initials you picked make me think of jerk at all. I actually really like them.
