    SBO isn't bad while SOB is definitely a deal-breaker. Why don't you select another monogram style that uses the first, middle, and then surname in that order?

    You can easily have things monogrammed with SBO instead of SOB. Shepherd is an excellent choice, and I love maiden names as first/middle names.

    I too am from the south and agree that monogram in will probably be an issue. I personally would have a problem with sOb, but as people have pointed out many times you can change the order or style.

    Particularly with a boy, going with a less ornate style and SBO would be an option I would consider. While it's not a traditional monogram it still serves the same purpose while avoiding initial issues and keeping the name you love. Btw Shepherd is adorable.

    I agree w/ what others have said, just do SBO if you have to monogram. I've never had anything monogrammed in my life but I am from Eastern Canada so must be a cultural thing. Anyway, def keep his name if you love it b/c his actual initials are fine..SBO. And I love the name Shepherd, what a wonderful choice!!

    Yes this maybe a problem. When I worked in a nursery nearly every kid had a monogrammed diaper bag/backpack, lunch box, pacifier, dress/shirt, sippy cup, blankie.....

    Although you can easily have things monogrammed yourself with SBO you'll also be getting gifts. When the name is announced, make sure to tell friends/family about your concerns and ask that any monogrammed gifts not use the traditional style
