Stupidity Confession: I don't know all these acronyms!

Someone please tell me what all these acronyms stand for. I've seen DS, DH, DD, SO, and more. What do these stand for exactly? I get that they stand for son, daughter, husband, but what is the 'D' for and what is SO? Thanks in advance for your help.
