Were you careful when naming your child of their initials!?

What's in a name?  Were you careful when naming your child of their initials (or was that your plan!?) hehe!  For example... my friend named her son Patrick Edward Thomas.  She named him this because his initials are P.E.T. & that's what she calls him... her pet!  Eeeeeek!?

That poor kid, I'm sure he will be teased! I went to school with a guy that went by the name of Dan. However, when we started high school, the teachers were addressing him as Donald (and he was not correcting them.)  Turns out, D.A.N. were his initials, Donald Andrew Norton! Go figure!

We weren't so shortly after our second son was born a friend of mine congratulated my on my new CCM.  It took me a few minutes to get it.

My son now thinks its cool.  He lays claim to any sports equipment with his initials on it.

Yea you should definitely look out for the initials like DOA or HIV or KKK, those would not be very good to have.
