I am so proud of the name I picked for my baby...

Atticus Stephen but his last name will be Scott...do intials really matter that much?

  • A.S.S? He could possibly get picked on. You will have to teach him to be proud of his name.

  • I really like that name. I had a friend named Ashley Samantha Salyers. Nobody really noticed so I think he'll be fine.

  • I think if the spell ASS I would rethink it. What about having a second middle name??? Such as Atticus Stephen Andrew Scott (or whatever middle name you like)
    Initials aren't always a big deal, but sometimes they are... for example, I work as a nurse and all of my electronic signatures are my initials... "ajg" with the world becoming more dependent on electronics, I would assume this might be the case in a lot of situations.... so he'll forever be be signing "ASS" or my DH who's a teacher has his school email adress with his first and middle initial and then his last name... so in this case it would be "ASSCOTT@whatever.com"

  • I love the name Atticus:) It is my son's middle name. It might have been his first name but I adopted him at seven months old and thought it was a good idea to keep his original first name.
