Initials SLT

I think we've finally decided on our baby name. The only issue is that the initials would be SLT (or possibly SLFT if we add a 2nd middle name). When you see those initials do you see the word "slut", or am I being crazy? DH certainly thinks so!

When I see those I think ‘senior leadership team’ but then I work in education 😂

Initials are so rarely written down like that I really wouldn’t worry, give your baby the name you love

I agree, you almost never in adult life use your initials. These initials don't spell anything anyway. Go right ahead and choose the names you like.

I saw stamp (duty) land tax grin
Which may be worse than slut wink

The initials are fine. It’s not like they are VD or similar.

I think Speech and Language Therapist

I read it as senior leadership team toogrin

I saw SALT and thought nickname salty. Slut never occurred to me

I disagree that initials are rarely written down. But I don't see slut, I see senior leadership team too.
Back in my teaching day the form groups were labelled according to the initials of the teacher. One group should have been MOO. It was changed to MOD but the kids all referred to the class and teacher as moo sad

Speech and Language here too. But it wouldn’t put me off.

ChocolateCrunch Tue 05-Dec-17 08:09:44

Speech and Language Therapy to me! I think the initials are fine, nothing to worry about.

purplesquares Tue 05-Dec-17 08:13:24

Phew! That's definitely reassuring to hear that you guys don't see it either. Wasn't sure if DH was just saying it because he couldn't hear any more discussions on baby names! 😂

Senior leadership team / speech and language therapist both sound like pretty good job prospects so don't mind either of those hehe!

YesThisIsMe Tue 05-Dec-17 08:14:41

Initials often used in my workplace. But I don’t think anyone except you would look at those letters and see “slut”.

Pannacott Tue 05-Dec-17 08:37:06

Speech and language therapist here too.

HoratioNightboy Tue 05-Dec-17 11:08:06

I read it as 'slit'. Is that worse?

Definitely senior leadership team

MagicFajita Tue 05-Dec-17 13:00:13

Yep. Senior leadership teamsmile

Mrsknackered Tue 05-Dec-17 13:26:18

Another one for Speech and Language.

It didn't occur to me my first thought was maybe you thought it was too similar to BLT, which is a ridiculous thought

BenLui Tue 05-Dec-17 13:29:15

I don’t work in education but I see Senior Leadership Team too.

Mrscog Tue 05-Dec-17 13:33:35

Yeah- Senior Leadership Team for me!

firawla Tue 05-Dec-17 13:35:00

Speech and language therapist for me. Slut didn’t cross my mind

redexpat Tue 05-Dec-17 13:35:58

Senior leadership team.

Smoliver Tue 05-Dec-17 21:21:50

I read it as SALT grin

SantaStuckInTheChimney Tue 05-Dec-17 21:30:26

I also saw senior leadership team. I definitely didn't think slut.
