    Initial trouble- Are these names off the table?

    Recently, I'm finding that I love several "B" names for both genders. However, our last name starts with a J... I realize there will be a middle initial separating them, but am I subjecting my children to lifetime of "BJ" jokes if I give them these initials?

    Thanks Berries!

    I have a friend who's initials are BS, who doesn't get any harassment from it. Yes it was pointed out a couple times but it was just shaken off. Teasing is weird, often taking strange components (ex. Johnny Appleseed for John; Maximilian who owns a million dollars in debt). Initials are something to be aware of, but shouldn't stop you from using your favorite names.

    I would personally avoid the initials BJ. In real life a middle initial wouldn't make any difference I wouldn't have thought.

    Its a tricky one! I've known a few people are BJ's...honestly it rarely comes up! But yes, when it does come up, jokes are made.

    I'd stay far away from BJ it would probably be fine as an adult, but not through school.
