Since ancient times, monograms have been a way to identify ownership and personalize important items. While the earliest monograms, on ancient coins and coats of arms, consisted of only two letters, Victorian-era socialites held fast to a three-letter rule. For women, the first initial was on the left, followed by a large last initial, and a middle initial. Men had monograms consisting of three equally-sized letters representing their first, middle, and last initials. For married couples, the bride's first initial would be on the left, the groom's first initial on the right, and both would be entwined in a center initial consisting of the shared last name.
Today, monograms can be creative as you'd like them to be.
