    Namer Terms

    I dont know where this belongs so I put it here.

    What are some "namer terms" that non-namers wouldnt know what they mean? Like GP, sibset. Any more???

    I think non name nerds would be able to understand what "guilty pleasure" names are, but I agree, perhaps not GP. The only ones I can think of are DH, DD and DS, which I read mean "darling / dear husband", "darling / dear daughter" and "darling / dear son". It took me ages to figure out what they meant, and it was frustrating me so I decided to look it up, haha.

    P.S = I think this thread would fit in better in the Talk About Baby Names or the Everything But Names sections.

    Maybe abbreviations like FN, MN, nn.

    And there are plenty of terms that non-name-nerds would understand, but that we berries use in a more name-specific way (combo, flow, dated, etc.) as well as momberry/TTC specific things (like BFP.)

    And I agree that this thread might be better off in another section.

    I’d add
    prn = pronunciation
    to the already created list but really I think most are pretty straight forward and/or can easily be plugged into a search engine for a result. I can’t think of any that are really NB (nameberry) specific or naming specific with the exception of NB

    nn. I feel like if I ever want to ask friends or family about names for a future story, I can't just write Benedikt nn Ben. They'd be like, "Ummmm... what does "nn" mean?!" I feel like nms(aa), fn, ln, mn, etc., would equally be lost on them. Even though they're not that hard to pick up on. I pretty much figured out all the lingo on my own, haha!
