    Sorry, I think the spelling is a little bogan. The name itself is fine, but when I see names that are spelled differently from the traditional/ recognised spelling(s) then I often think that the parent has misspelled it/ didn't know how it was supposed to be spelled.

    I know that might be wrong, and that the parent may have just preferred it that way, but my initial response would be that the mother and father got the spelling wrong.

    I don't think I'm alone here, as I have heard conversations along those lines when a baby has been given a name with a unique spelling, and friends/ family have - politely - discussed with each other whether the parents knew that it was misspelled, and whether someone should tell them. (The decision has always been no, not to tell them!)

    But each to their own. If there is a name and a spelling you love then I think you should feel free to use it. I'm answering the question honestly as to what I would think, but not trying to infer that people shouldn't give their children whatever names they like.

    I don't think it's bog an at all, I think it's beautiful. Our DD1 is Jessi-Kayte (named after DHs best friend Jessica Kathleen), apparently that's bogan?!

    I think misspelling Eleanor is bogan, but yes I also think hyphenated and misspelt names like Jessi-Kayte are bogan too. Sorry - but you really shouldn't care what I or anyone else thinks - your DD has a special name from a special friend so that's nice for you and her.

    Bogan spelling, to me, is the unnecessary insertion of the letter 'y', in an attempt to make the name look the way it sounds *shakes head*.

    I don't see anything wrong with Ellenor, although I do prefer the original spelling

    My name is hyphenated (Kristi-Lee), as is my other daughters (Schuyler-Rae).

    ETA we didn't just add the 'y' in Kayte to make it look the way it's said... We did it because we like the name Kate but wanted something a little bit different without being OTT. I have seen plenty of women with the spelling Kayte.

    Yes I think it is. It makes the parents look uneducated. Like the one I met in hospital who spelled the kid's name Hanner. She did it to incorporate the father's name, Tyler, but to me it was spelled wrong.
