Q: I am thinking about naming my child using 4 names, a double first name then middle and last….how would I monogram her things using initials?
A: Congratulations! A new baby certainly brings to mind all kinds of questions.
Here are two options for you to consider (we’re using the sample name of Mary Kate Elizabeth Taylor)
MKET (all capitalized and all in the order they would normally appear: first name, second first name, middle name, last name)
MKTE (all capitalized but, in the traditional monogram order: first name, second first name, last name- initial is physically bigger than the rest of the initials- and finally the middle name initial.
The only reason why people tend to choose option one is because option two is not symmetrical, however it is a personal choice.
