Mrs. Rachel Anne Field had a thing about initials. This was because her maiden name was Turnbull, and she had grown up with the initials of RAT. How people teased her.
“Never give a middle name starting with a vowel,” she always said. “A middle name starting with a vowel can easily form a word.”
She was careful to name her daughters with acceptable initials. She didn’t want them teased like she had been. There was Carol Beatrice Field and Wanda Tammy Field.
Their initials couldn’t possible form a word. Of course, they were born before texting.
