    Default Name abbreviations

    Hello,
    My name is Grant Duncan McLaren Morrison. My question is, how should I abbreviate my initials? Sould I write G.D.M. Morrison., or G.D.McL. Morrison?
    Look forward to your response.

    Personally, I'd lose some initials, but G.D.M. Morrison would be correct.

    A good scottish name. Strangely enough all of your names could be surnames, but only Grant and Duncan are recognised as first names. Maybe you could use G.D McLaren-Morrison, although it is a bit of a handful.
