Avoiding Initials?

We had originally picked out Dana Grace for #2, if baby turns out to be a girl, but today I've falled in love with Dana Ivy.

Only issue is our last name begins with a Y meaning her initials would be DIY.

Should we avoid this because of the "do it yourself" association?

If it was profane or something but I don't think that would be a problem :)

I wouldn't avoid a name I loved just because of that :).

I don't think those would be bad initials, maybe she'll be really crafty :) 

If this is a girl and we go with the name we're thinking her initials will be SAK-not sure about that.

I don't think DIY are terrible initials. My DD's initials are ALL. My cousin's initials are AIM. If it was something that could be turned dirty or picked on, I'd say avoid it, but DIY isn't bad. Kids can be mean about anything, if you think about it.

I wouldn't, I actually love doing DIY projects, so I think it's cute.

I don't think I'd trash the names due to the initials there.  As some said DIY isn't that bad, and let's be honest... how often do we actually have something with our initials on them?  Next to never!
