I really love the name Beatrice (nn Bea) but it's just occurred to me that would make the initials BS.. Should I think again? sad

I vote think again, sorry.

Yes. Think again.

You are thinking too hard. I had a lovely time with my OH thinking up funny initials for our DD - am still sad we did not go with the extra middle name and end up with ABCD instead of just ABD grin

My DH is BS. It's really not an issue.

My DS is BS. And my dad. Never been an issue.

Go with the name you love.

youngest is not only bs but also bm....s is his middle name.
no one has ever mentioned anything, certainly no teasing was ever mentioned growing up and nothing now as an adult.
btw as number 3 I let my hubby pick his name entirely without my input....

Maybe it could be a problem later on at work. In my office people are always referred to as their initials in minutes or project plans to denote ownership of a task.

My work is the same.. Our Chief Exec has the initials BS! It made me pause for a second the first time I wrote it! But was thinking more in school our initials were used quite a bit too sad

I'm BS and it has never been a problem. This is on marriage though, so I didn't deal with it as a child. I usually add my middle initial for minutes etc.,but often don't bother anymore.

My DD is BS and never really thought or worried about it

I went to school with a CRAP and an ARSE, neither of them ever had any problems.

These are my initials. I am over 40, and literally nobody has ever commented on them. I doubt it will be an issue.

My DP has these initials. It's never been an issue for him.

No I wouldn't worry about it my ds has initials TB and initially I was worried however it really doesn't matter (speaking as a primary teacher) they can always use middle name initials if don't like it in future!

Thanks everyone! I was talking to my friend yesterday who pointed out her initials are ET and no-one has ever commented on it smile DH says I'm over thinking it too.. Glad because I really do love the name smile
