Outlining potential name problems…

First and foremost it is important to work through your list of preferred first and middle names alongside your family name. Check for things like initials – when they are listed together do they look unusual or spell out any strange acronyms?

Secondly, do any of the names sound similar to the surname or do any names rhyme or create an unappealing sound or pattern?
