How to do a monogram with 4 names?
« on: January 03, 2011, 11:46:34 PM »

Naming time is near and what to do if we go with 4 names and getting things monogrammed. This is quite a challenge and there must be a solution that we don't know!

Clearly not the biggest issue ever--but one that we're struggling with and surely there are many GREAT opinions here!

Thank you all!

A few examples below but I like the first one best with the first initial on the left, the last initial on the right and the two middle initials in the centre (one above the other).

Here is a blog article about how to do it (#6 is cute):

We use either 3 or 4 initials depending on the situation.  Since our girls have two middle names, I figure their middle name is the complete two names.  So if I need to use just three initials, I use the initial of the first part of the middle name

Agree

our kids technically have 5 initials. ......when it asks for a middle intiial we just go w/   the first of the three middle ones

I grew up with 4 names and my monogram was always in block letters straight across - however my mom came up with a cool way to do it when I was in my 20's!! I'll have to take a picture and send it to you, as I have never seen it done this way before and it looked AWESOME!!
I'll see if I can take a pic tonight and post it for you!!

Thank you Addie4us!

We decided on a name today and my DH has now reconfirmed it 3 times since we decided when we went to lunch together.

The initials will be L V L B and the 2nd L will be the Chinese name (she has a BEAUTIFUL Chinese name we think!) so if we do a traditional monogram I thought :  L B V and that way if she strongly connects with her Chinese name in the future, then she can still have all existing monograms still working!

And thank you PollyHenri--I love the Monogram Mama website and will be ordering some stationary for thank you notes!

Got to love my RQ sisters!

I thank you and Baby Grace4Me thanks you--she just doesn't know it yet!
