Very Important Question

I have a baby present that I want to monogram. The baby's initials are going to be A.M.M. Traditionally, that would make her monogram look like this:


But I was thinking that, on account of the symmetry, I might do this instead:


Do you think her parents would hate it and think I'm a moron? Please advise.


  1. Don't think the parents would hate it (that would make them ungrateful and unworthy) , but stick to tradition. In this instance it is more important than symmetry.

  2. I like it! If possible, try to make the A bigger and the M's smaller to make it not a traditional monogram.

  3. FWIW, I'm not monogramming silver or anything -- it's going to be stenciled on a tole storage bin.

  4. If you're going to place a monogram, I would stick to the traditional monogramming style and placement. Or maybe just put the "A" on it . . . and that could solve the problem.

  5. For a baby I would just do the first initial.

  6. How much "finishing" have the parents had...most folks I run with wouldn't know the difference. Of course, my crowd also drops their maiden names & keeps their middle names after the nuptials, but I know better than to correct them. ;-)
