The name and middle names I want to give my baby would give him the initials SADS.
Do you think this is ok, or is the negative connotation too strong?

I could switch the middle names round- SDAS - though I'd rather not.

What is wrong with SADS? confused

I doubt they will use all 4 initials very often so fine. At school if using initials will just be SS.

I wouldn't, too negative. I'd switch.

Motherfuckers Tue 07-Jun-16 06:24:20

I must be missing something.. I googled and everything. Can someone help me here.

What is SADS?

ThroughThickAndThin01 Tue 07-Jun-16 06:27:20

Seasonal disorder thingy?

I just think of sad sad though.

Seasonal affective disorder? SAD not SADS, you are over thinking it OP, there is no negative connotation there.

SADS isn't seasonal affective disorder it's Sudden Adult Death Syndrome, ie a sudden unexpected adult death often down to genetic heart conditions.

Even so there's very few that will know that or even see all four intinals.

Or even you over thinking it just says SAD it doesn't matter really

It's fine. When will your DC ever use all four initials?! I can safely say my first and surname initials are never used in any context, let alone my middle name initial.

Lawyers tend to be known by their initials. I think the Sudden adult death syndrome would put me off.

Stiff - I'm a lawyer and yep, use my initials at work!
But looks like I am overthinking it.

stiffstink Tue 07-Jun-16 09:47:42

Me too (although I will probably discourage the DCs from the same career)!

DS's initials got a lot of positive feedback at work (more so than DD's actual name which is apparently "terrible" and "a mouthful")

msatlantis Tue 07-Jun-16 12:14:36

Stiff - ditto re career!

I immediately though sudden adult death syndrome

It might not be as well know as SIDS which could work for you but it is known..

Personally I wouldn't use it but it is your choice

My DD is SAD it was only noticed by the registrar and I had settled on the names so didn't change. I will just tell DD for always add a smiley face after her initials for balance wink

AuntieStella Tue 07-Jun-16 12:20:46

I know about SADS

Aside from that, all initials and surname together isn't particularly uncommon and that makes the DC into SAD Smith, or SAD Spencer or whatever. I don't think I'd choose that, sorry.

Can you stop the middle names round and still get a nice cadence?

Aw I think it's too negative! My first thought was 'sudden adult death syndrome' then that maybe it's just too sad overall, then the season affective disorder after I read pps mention it.

I doubt it matters really given some PPs confusion, I'm sure most people would think it's nothing to note, but those were my thoughts!
