Many girls with double first names aren’t sure how their monogram should look after they get married. Start with the double name initials stacked.

The married last name initial (center) will be the largest.

If you have multiple middle names, start your monogram with your first name initial. Follow this with your middle name initials, and end with your last name initial. All of the initials should appear at the same size.
