    I have 4 names and use my birth name instead of my baptismal name. My husband was Lawrence, and we both had the same initials as well as the same last name. We met quite by accident, and lo and behold it took. When I was preggers with my son we decided to keep the initials and if it was a boy, Liam Edward would be it. If a girl, Lara Elizabeth. I had a son and the rest is history as he's my only child. Lost hubby to Viet Nam when Liam was an infant.

    I like the idea of using the same initials. I imagine it was rough having to raise a child alone. People tend to forget the great heartbreak and tragedies which occur during war. My husband had served in Viet Nam while as in the Navy. They came back via California and it was just the biggest deal with all the anti-war rioters. To the day he died, he had a distinct dislike for liberals. :D

    I cannot say that I blame him, Bess. The people who served did not deserve to be treated so shabbily.
