Oh dear, I haven't read the entire thread, so apologies if this has come up already. I follow a very well known house cleaning 'influencer' on instagram (purely out if nosiness and incredulity). She has just had Christmas cards printed to send out to her friends and family.

Merry Christmas from the Surname's ! (Her actual surname complete with apostrophe)


I do feel for the poor fellow from the apostrophe protection society, he must feel so demoralised.

Ha ha. I hope you have plenty of spare time as it will be a full time job teaching me!

I was never a good attender either, hence at 15 I was told I wasn't required to attend school anymore.

I'm sorry but ADR's is just plain wrong! It's ADRs.

It's pretty clear that ADRs means multiple Advance Dining Reservations*. There is no need to add a superfluous apostrophe. So there!


(* whilst I'm here, and this is not aimed at Bianca, the A in ADR stands for Advance not Advanced. They are reservations made in advance, not reservations that are better or more developed than Standard Dining Reservations ).

Nimbus. Sorry you got it wrong

ADR stands for Amazingly Dear Repast.

So with more than 1 and therefore an apostrophe it is as follows:-

Amazingly Dear Repasts's

ADR certainly doesn't stand for "Affordable Disney Restaurant", that's for sure! Those don't exist.

Yes, I'd choose ADRs over ADR's, too!

It was just an example that it is acceptable, sometimes, to add apostrophes when pluralising acronyms -- especially if your readers might not be so familiar with the acronym used.

I bet you feel better for having got that out!

Yes it does!

Lots of people where I work use apostrophes when pluralising acronyms - ADD's, CDR's, etc. It's annoying. I just want to ask "ADD's what? What belongs to the ADD?"

...and relax.
