We've used this script to automatically set those initials for our users for 
our office 2003 environment.  Not sure if that applies to 07 or not but could 
be used to set blank if desired:

'script to set office initials in citrix

Set objSysInfo = CreateObject( "WinNTSystemInfo" )
strComputerName = objSysInfo.ComputerName

Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")

strUser = objSysInfo.UserName
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & strUser)

Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
objWord.UserName = objUser.givenName & " " & objUser.SN
objWord.UserInitials = Left(objUser.givenName, 1) & Left(objUser.SN, 1)

End If

Subject: [THIN] Office 2007 Profiles

Hi all:
What is the best way to copy Office 2007 settings to users?
I don't believe there is a Profile Wizard for Office 2007, right?

Also, is there a way to force Username Personalization when the user first runs 
Word 2007?
This is under Word Options -> Popular
I used to be able to set it to "blank" in Office 2003, but that is not working 
in Office 2007.
