I also really like the idea of going with Faith Hannah. I agree with others that FAG doesn't work for initials.

had the same issue when I wanted to use the middle name of my husband and his dad as my son's (or potentially son) name. His name would have been
Gabriel Alan Skrabacz........my husband was the one to point out....um GAS? what if he joins the military? He will be Gasy Gabe or Gas mask or something disgusting and be made fun of. No matter how understanding you can expect adults to be, you can never underestimate the cruelty of children sometimes.

Faith Anne is a lovely name, but I agree with most of the posters, that this is unfortunately a road you probably shouldn't go down. Sorry. Good luck!

yeah, I read this to my husband, and we both thought the same thing, maybe adding another middle name, like Faith Ann ... something... then your last name.

I agree that Faith Hannah doesn't sound very different than Faith Anna. I also like the hyphenated option as well.

Okay in a way: Yes she is likely to get teased, but not necessarily because of her initials. Yes: From pre-K to grade 11 we were using our initials on things. But kids tease no matter what, sadly. I think it's bound to happen. You can hope to raise her to be strong and well adjusted and confident and proud to carry a name with a beautiful meaning behind it. My sister and I haven't spoken in a year, she has never met my son, and never will- and even though it's a combination of things she has done it all STARTED with her judging his name (Abdullah). I intend on making my son very proud of his name.
So if you love her name- do it. She might get teased, but if you call her by something else it doesn't mean she won't get teased for anything else.
Edit for sp.

Anna or Ann Faith would work. But what about Hannah or something similar? Faith Hannah or Hanne has a similar sound to it. :)

I got teased in school from my initials kids can be real cruel. My initials were ANL don't really think much of it right, yea think again kids called me anal... now married my initials are ANC, and its not like it had a huge impact on me but it did make me think about everything when naming my own children. I also like using ann with another middle names so she has two middle names or a name that has Ann in it. Rosanne, LeAnn, Deann, Luann, Breanne, JoAnn, Viviann...
Thank you for all the responses and suggestions!!!
We would like to keep the name Faith. My husband would never go for the hyphenated Faith-Ann, although I think it is cute. I like the idea of kinda slightly changing the middle name but essentially keeping the Ann in it. Any ideas that go with Rose, Rosily, Lynn, or Joyce. Or any other cute modifications.

I have a potential solution, if you're interested...
My first name is hyphenated, which poses problems of its own... but it might solve your problem.
Why not Faith-Ann Middle Last? Then her initials would be FXG or FAXG depending on preference.
Since I got married, my initials are: KDMWT
My first and last names are hyphenated and the Marie in the middle stands alone. lol

I totally agree with the previous poster and her suggestions were great. I wouldn't do F A G as initials personally. Allthough I do like Faith Ann it just dosnt work. Sorry.

I used to not put that much stock in initials, but think about the possibility of her being assigned an email at school or work one day and having to be email@example.com or whatever. Also, you would never be able to monogram anything for her, if you care.
Could you think of another middle name that has "Ann" as part of it, but is not the whole thing? Maybe a name that is a combination of Ann and another name important to you? Perhaps Leighann/Liann, Breann, Deann, Danni, Jilliann, Roxann, etc?

So my husband and I are having our second child, and this one is going to be a girl. We decided we want to name her Faith Ann, but the problem is that our last name starts with a "G" so the initials all together spell FAG... We thought about changing the middle name, but Ann is named after my grandma and she means a lot to the both of us, and, well, Faith is the only name we can agree on. So the question is do you think anyone would really notice that what her full initials spell? Would she get teased? Should we change it?
