Is this a problem / would you avoid this or am i overthinking? Thanks

I don't think it would bother me so I'd go ahead with my choice

I knew a boy at school who's initials spelt MRS. Nobody really said anything.

My nephews initials are ARMS. I think it’s ok.

I would avoid it if possible. Do you have another middle name you could add maybe ?

That's fine I knew a girl who's initials spelt ASS.

Really doesn't matter.

Doesn't matter.

There are worse thing out there to spell, ARM is fine in comparison.

My cousin's initals are PIS - she'd love it if they were just ARM!

Mine spelt BAD at school. Or RAD depending on whether I used my shortened name.

Should clarify, not just at school, until I got married! blush

Mine spell SEA. The only issue is that this is also the abbreviation for South East Asia at work which is sometimes a PITA.

I know a child who's initials are JCB - he was affectionately known as Digger when he was younger.

I don't think ARM will be a problem.

'Armless enough.

DIC or DIK not so much.

Mike grin

Mine are CAKE

DH would have been ARSE until his parents realised and swapped the order of the names around.

ARM is totally fine.

Although assuming the M is the surname I'd be tempted to find names that made YUM or WHAM sorry not helpful I know

Good to hear thank you smile

Bell Ursula might feel she drew a short straw.
CAKE is good.
Mine, strangely enough, is ...

I know of someone named Tim, with brother Tom and sister Sam and all of their initials spelled their names, so
Timothy Ian M~~~~~
Thomas Oliver M~~~~~
Samantha Anne M~~~~~

I can't make it work with my surname but I'd be so tempted to do that!
