hi, well, I had thought of the text speak issue! however, as it goes, it turns out that DH's great grandfather's name was spelt with a C not a K, so initials will be WCR, which I think is ok?? certainly no potential for teasing like WKR would have had!! so, think we will be registering William Curt R - assuming we can get through before the snow comes down.

I also prefer WAR to WKR. My initials are used all the time at work on the computer system. If I saw someone with the initials WAR on our system it would stand out but I would not think anything bad about it. I think it is fine.

I prefer WAR to WKR as well - txt spk is too common these days to risk WKR!

I think W.A.R is fine as well. I think W.K.R is probably worse as it does look a bit like an abbreviation for wanker, in the same way WKD is for wicked.

I agree, no one will notice WAR so go with whatever name you prefer. Personally I like middle names to have a meaning so would go for naming him after his dad. Congratulations, hope you're both doing well. :-)

I don't think anyone will notice or comment on W.A.R. However, if you decide against it W.K.R. is fine. Congratulations on the birth of William. thanks for you!

so, we have got our lovely baby boy (Jan 10th), first name decided on - William. Our surname begins with R. DH suggested his first name as a middle name, I pointed out this would spell WAR - not good. He is now suggesting a name beginning with K - is W.K.R ok? not open to any kind of teasing later in life?? My brain is a bit fried, so thought I'd consult with mumsnet! Aiming to register William on Monday, so need to decide on a middle name.
