    Unfortunate initials... help!

    It's a boy and he will be Phineas (nn Finn). Our last name begins with "S" and we are struggling to find a middle name we like that has a strong meaning without making the initials:
    PMS
    POS (piece of sh**)
    PIS
    wondering if we should also maybe avoid PPS (is "pee-pees" a problem?) and PNS (will his initials/monogram look like penis... I'm probably way over thinking this).

    Our girls are Rosalie Matilda (mighty in battle) and Leonie Ruth (compassionate friend).

    We are looking for a middle name that doesn't give him unfortunate initials, has an equally strong and positive meaning to our girls' middles, and fits with our other names.

    Thank you! We're stuck!

    My first thought was to change the spelling of Phineas to Finneas.
    Strong boy names:
    Alexander: defender of men
    Sebastian: venerable, revered
    Barin: noble fighter
    Wyatt: little warrior
    Lorcan: fierce
    Barrett: strength of a bear
    Delvin: fierce courage
    Gabriel: God is my strength
    Rex: king
    Kendrick: royal power, greatest champion
    Ryder: knight
    Hope this helps

    Love pp's suggestions of Barrett and Rex. How about
    Phineas Jasper "treasurer"
    Phineas Warrick "strong leader who defends"

    I might be the only one, but none of those initials seem like that big a deal to me.

    Personally, I think I'd only avoid PMS, but really, how often are middle names used?

    Phineas 'Oscar Surname' would not lead me to think 'piece of sh** at all.
