Assunto:  "visto" (a 'short' signature)?
 
Mensagem: 

  Hi, Ky; in a second thought I searched the term some more.

  So, I was able to understand what you were looking for, or at least I thought so.

  Here you go:

  A neat signature, but a signature can be scribbled down in a not so neatly way.

   Initials, like Dale said, stands for signature.

See that the document talk about "sign" or "initial'' (assine ou ponha as iniciais - rabisque se quiser, "garatuje" quase que aleatoriamente.)

"Obama's overly large signature shows tha he likes attention and is a bit of an egotist. "

 

See? it´s a signature and at the same time you could call it the guy´s initials.

However, the signature may be the initials of someone (his/her name first letters) as we see written in Brazil (sometimes).    It seems that the term "initials" developed to mean one´s signature (when scribbled in haphazardly fashion).

"Have you ever tried to digitize your signature? I gave up after the first initial. Of course, once you are successfull, you copy the result over and over again."

A case of which you could call it initials or signature (here initials isn´t the initial letters of the name, but the signature itself)

 

 

 

 

In documents, before jotting down your name in the field SIGN HERE, be sure if it may allowed to sign, put your initials or both.

 

 

Hope it helps.

 PP.
