    Candor, I find it harder to remember a 2-letter abbreviation for names so I usually just type the name or part of the name, like you said. There's no "right" way to do it, but if people are going to abbreviate, then it helps to have something established or else run the risk of everyone using just "J" and leading to confusion.

    And of course nicknames will pop up for lots of them, and some of us will start using THEM! Like, for instance, I can think of a lot of nicknames for HOWIE so far!

    ALSO...note to everyone...the ones I said are merely suggestions (and includes some other's suggestions as well.)

    I'm thinking I really have to call April "Pheebs" since she looks so much like Lisa Kudrow!
