Wondering what you ladies think of the initials T.P. as in toilet paper.

Tessa Petrocelli

Will she get made fun of?
Any middle name suggestions?

Thanks,
Dawn

Hmm, I can't think of any time I have actually used my intials on anyhting - or my kids - nor thought anything of anyone else's - so I would say it's not a big deal.

I think it will be fine. And if anyone does figure it out TP is pretty harmless!

I can think of many instances when I have used my initials and I wouldn't want them to be T.P. That's just my opinion.

Although Tessa is one of my favorite names, I'd have to say I wouldn't use it if I were you. Kids can be very cruel.

I say not a big deal at all, especially if you are giving her a middle name. Monograms, for example, usually use the middle initial. Whenever I initial anything, I use my middle initial as well. I don't think that TP is bad enough of initials anyway to really catch on. Even if one mean kid thinks of it, I don't think it'll be funny enough for all the other kids to join in. Tessa is way too beautiful of a name to give up on because of a handful of brats in a small window of time in her life.

It shouldn't be a big deal, I wouldn't worry about it........but if you are, then name her Contessa (or something along those lines), and just refer to her as Tessa KWIM?

I never even thought of it being toilet paper until I read what you wrote. I was thinking T.P like the tent, not sure on how to spell it.

I wouldn't even worry about it. I don't think that kids even look at intials that aren't completely obvious (like A.S.S or P.P, etc).
