basically what the title says! BS... will it matter?

Hmm not sure. How often do we use intials. I don't think I'd pick up on it but my mind tends not to notice things like that!
Can you not choose a middle name to use in case it causes an issues down the line?

dont really see the point in middle names :/

Don't worry, OP...I truly wouldn't have even thought to connect it with that BS, had you not mentioned it. I'd say it's fine.

Unlike the hassle perhaps destined for a classmate called, say, Fiona Underwood? sad

I wouldn't. Sometimes schools like initials embroidered on PE kit. etc.

It wouldn't jump out at me but as other people have said it would if it was put on PE kits etc.

No idea, but I thought that was somewhat relevant ;)

Do you love the name? What about using it as a nickname (let's say you love the name Berta. Instead of Berta Smith you go for Alberta Smith... Although, not sure if AS is better...)

I know a few 'BJs' 🙈 as a school we regularly refer to children in verbal and email communication with their initials...!

It made me chuckle but really doesn't matter.

Couldn't see it being an issue at all!! Go for it. I doubt kids really use/look at intials and making the connection if they did.

They might use intials later in life - we use initials a lot where I work and I have to refer my colleague 'BJ' a lot. No one giggles over it!

SmokeCloak Sat 29-Apr-17 19:59:17

No it won't matter.

Justmadeperfectflapjacks Sat 29-Apr-17 20:01:04

Better than BJ. .

These are my initials. Literally no-one has ever commented on them.

TheVanguardSix Sat 29-Apr-17 22:56:40

Not at all. Don't over think things.

At work people often have to initial documents to show they've read them. Those initials would look like a comment! People on here might say it won't matter but might it matter to your dc in years to come? If you think there's a chance it will, which clearly you do otherwise you wouldn't be asking, then don't do it.

Well, in this case, the 'point' would be that the child's initials were not 'BS' wink
