    BM

    Are these horrible initials for a child? Our last name starts with M, can't change that. And I LOVE the name Beau for a boy, but not sure if I can get over the unfortunate initials. Am I over thinking it or should I scratch the name?

    I personally don't feel like it would be a big deal but some people feel strongly about it.
    I think it's more people in the medical field who are more accustomed to seeing it as an acronym.

    I'd just give him a cool middle so the focus of any "initial" discussion is positive.

    Beau Atticus M.... would be BAM!
    Beau Oliver M.... would be BOM!

    My best friend Brooklyn grew up with those initials. I only ever remember people laughing once and it was an adult. The kids didn't get it. By the time kids are old enough to know what a BM stands for they're too old to really laugh at the initials... If I really loved a B name I honestly wouldn't let it stop me.

    I'm not sure why BM would be an issue, so I'm going to say it's fine.

    My brother's name is Beau and his middle is Michael. I don't think it has ever really had an impact on him.
