Complete carseat acronym list?


New member
I found the list below in the FAQ forum, but it was posted in 2008 so there are probably a few new ones since then. I looked for a complete acronym list (carseat specific) but couldn't find one. I probably am just missing it! Could someone link to the list or, if a more complete one doesn't exist, perhaps add to the one below?

How about a list of other frequently used acronyms or abbreviations too (that are not the car seat models)? Members use all kinds of acronyms when referencing their kids, spouses, etc.

I imagine that list has been updated since 2008 as there are some seats on there that weren't yet out then.

There are also a lot of abbreviations on there I've NEVER seen! BR=Britax Frontier? RC and RS=Recaro Como and Signo? Really?

I thought there was a list of commonly used abbreviations (in general), but I'm on the app right now and it's hard to find things like that.
