I might be being extra cautious here as I used to smoke JPS Players!!!

Is it a problem?

Don't think many people would make the link!

Had to google what JPS Players was, I've never heard of that cigarette brand before. The initials won't be a problem at all.

No, it doesn't jump out at me st all. I only clicked the thread to find out what you meant TBH.

It’s not a problem.

It would never have occurred to me and I’m in my forties. (Although I do very vaguely remember the brand)

I’ve checked and it’s not even among the top google search results.

Yes, he will be ridiculed for all eternity. Who names their child after a packet of old man cigarettes?

ZuzuMyLittleGingersnap Sat 23-Sep-17 04:52:23

Nope. Few would make the association, I would think, OP.

MammieBear Sat 23-Sep-17 07:03:28

No problem at all.

My Ds's initials, I thought it funny, but no one has ever said anything about it.

Rocketbuddies Sat 23-Sep-17 07:12:19

I always find it a bit odd when people stress about initials. Not once in my life have my initials been used like that, sometimes AB Bloggs, but never ABB hmm

JPS wouldn't mean anything to me if I heard it though.

Rings no bells for me

BendydickCuminsnatch Sat 23-Sep-17 07:45:09

I have no idea what a JPS Player is.

CakeRattleandRoll Sat 23-Sep-17 12:00:56

Would never have occurred to me in a million years.

chloesmumtoo Sat 23-Sep-17 12:08:19

I didn't know either and also clicked on the threat to find out grin
Not a smoker so maybe that's why I've never heard of them.
I don't think it would be a problem op, I would have been oblivious

Lemondrop99 Sat 23-Sep-17 12:09:44

I have no idea what you're talking about so wouldn't have made the connection

sourpatchkid Sat 23-Sep-17 12:51:42

No idea what you were talking about and even when you said it was still completely irrelevant- you're overthinking this 😊

TheVoiceOfTreason Sat 23-Sep-17 13:24:29

To me, JPS is still synonymous with the F1 racing team of old, which I appreciate was named after the sponsors, but still. Cool cars. Cool team. Cool association.

JPS will be fine I'm sure! 👍🏻😀🥂

DiegoMadonna Sat 23-Sep-17 13:33:51

WTF is JPS??

BradleyPooper Sat 23-Sep-17 13:45:22

Thought you were referring to Jean Paul Sartre and wondered what the issue could be....

I've worked in 6 different schools and every single one has referred to staff members by a 3 initial code like JPS. These go up on the cover boards, duty boards and are even how some members of staff refer to each other!
I agree though, even to those who think of the cigarettes, JPS is not a big deal.
