    AW for attention whores, but I guess that isn't very specific on this show

    Incidently, these are initialisms that we are proposing, not acronyms. I realize that I'm probably the only one who cares, just file it under

    Now that you mention it, JN would confuse me too. How about JF for Jennifer? Or how about we just evict everybody who starts with "J".

    That's a great Idea, Qboots! Evict all of the J's!

    Okay, on my LIST I had written down JN but typed JA for "Janelle" So, how about....(as proposed above)

    JN or JL for Janelle
    JM for James
    JF for Jennifer

    comments? suggestions?

    As far as Kaysar, I put KA as far as pronouncing it, like KAysar. Do you all like KS better? and I saw that BO was suggested for Beau (which is cool, and I thought of, but was afraid someone would stone me for, lol) Do more of you like BO for Beau as well?

    I like JL for Janelle, no way we can misread it as for JF. And I still like Bo

    I'd say that's an excellent list Suncat!

    I'm really glad you stuck with "KA," because I don't think of "Kentucky" with that other acronym, but rather I think something else that could get me into lots of trouble if I got carried away on a snarky roll!!!

    Don't forget the other standards... POV is all I can come up with, but I'm sure there are a ton more that regular BB watchers can come up with.
