Don’t Let Your Baby be a H.O.G, Steer Clear of These Initial Combinations

So, a baby is on the way and you’re busy picking the perfect first and middle name. Because the last name cannot be changed, be sure to avoid giving your child an unnecessary nickname. Although Paige Marie might be a great combination for a baby girl, if her last name begins with an ‘S’ you may want to avoid  giving her the initials P.M.S. Daniel Owen also sounds great but pair it with a last name beginning with a ‘G’ and your little boy might not have the best nickname growing up. 

Below is a list of 3 paired initials to keep in mind when choosing your babies name and a few names that should help to avoid unnecessary nicknames in the future.

BIG, BRB, CAT, DIE, DOG, EGG, ELF, FAT, HOG, KKK, LOG, LOL, PIG, PMS, RAT, RIP, ROT, TUB, YUK
