This is a family crest / logo / brand. We are still determining if it is pronounced "H-I-J" (3 syllables as you say each letter, ache-eye-jay) or just "Hi J" as in (hi jay).
Intended use would be for clothing similar to logos for celebrities like Tiger Woods (TW) or Tom Brady (TB12) as examples. So keep it simple, intended to convey our family / clan / team / group and can be printed small as a logo (so not overly detailed) on a tshirt pocket for example.
The following can be useful to come up with ideas, our names start with H, I, I, J (can share actual names later if need be). We chose our kids' names to start with the letter 'I' because we "surround" them in the alphabet, H I J. We wanted to convey that we are there to protect them, guide them. So you can play with those 3 letters, or perhaps 8, 9, 10 as numbers (chronological in the alphabet). For example, our slogan "Play often" has "ten" in it, and 9 characters, would need to incorporate the 8 somehow.
Chinese Zodiac we are Ox, Monkey, Pig (probably steer away from this but giving more info). Attached is our the Chinese character of our family last name, and the character for family as well.
Symmetry or attempt at it would be the goal, although we really like Paris 2024 logo that manages to incorporate the 2, 4, and Eiffel tower.
You can use lower case i's as little head stick figures, only use one i with dots on both ends with h and j surrounding, or H and J as a shield, or spell out "Hi" with a J encompassing, or whatever your expertise and design creativity comes up with!
Finally, obviously we are Asian but don't feel constricted to that domain, could be harder/crisper lines, etc.
