MFK-what do these initials make you think of?

DH and I have agreed on Miles as a first name for DS (due December). His surname begins with a K, and we really want to use a middle name beginning with F after a family member. I think the initials MFK remind me of...well not a nice phrase. Am I over thinking it? BTW, I'm in the US, and using all 3 initials is very common here.

I didn't think of that phrase at all.
I just thought it was similar to MLK for Martin Luther King.

It made me think of the logo on some electrical plug sockets/light switches etc, although I think that is actually just MK blush

JFK and the nasty phrase. Sorry.

way overthinking.

I'm afraid it reminded me of not a nice phrase too.

Motherfucker. Sorry!

MFI

Nothing,

Would never think of that phrase f**cking Wa***er is mine for those sort of situations.

DM doesn't need to get involved.

I didn't realise until I read Scary's post blush

Most people don't know your middle name unless you tell them, so I'm sure it isn't going to be an issue.

My sister, those are her initials.

She is in her 30's and as far as I know, no-one has ever commented on her initials. Maybe everyone had been thinking it all these years.....

No I didn't get notherfucker!

ScaryBeardyDeadyman Fri 12-Oct-12 20:58:07

I could just be because I'm particularly foul mouthed...

I thought MFI too blush

If I'd just seen the initials together I wouldn't have made any connections, but the way your thread was worded, it made me look for something, and so yes - MoFo.

What I'm saying is that most people probably wouldn't make the connection without being prompted.

It didn't make me think of anything derogatory, but I don't generally swear anyway. Even having it pointed out to me it still wouldn't make me think of anything. They are just a small line of letters as far as I am concerned.

abbreviation for manufacturer, and motherfucker

GobblersKnob Sun 14-Oct-12 08:54:26

Motherfucker, but it wouldn't put me off.

Motherf*ck ... but then, I have a mouth like a sailor smile

Don't sweat it!

I swear much more than I care to admit, and I had no idea what this meant - I've just had to ask my husband (and then read the trail!). Agree that people generally don't go by full initials and also that people won't get it unless prompted. I think you're safe!

MadBusLadyHauntsTheMetro Sun 14-Oct-12 18:57:56

Didn't see it at all and I swear all the time. I stared at it trying to think of something and came up with Milton fucking Keynes, which is generally what I say when trying to navigate round its outskirts. Probably no UK/US crossover there.
