Ok I'm throwing this out to the forum... because I'm completely torn! Hubby and I have decided on a boys name and a girls name which we really LOVE (we aren't finding out the sex). Anyway the girls name (we think) is so pretty, however it could be spelt various ways. Hubby doesn't think this is an issue, however I worry that if we have a girl, she will end up hating her name because she will have to continually spell it, or correct people - what do you all think?
On one hand I think that people incorrectly spell even the simplest of names - my name is Sarah and I always have to say "with an h" and even names like Stuart (ua not ew) and Linda (i not y) have the same problem but on the other hand I worry - am I going to make my babies life more difficult from the onset? I should add that the name has a very obvious way it could be shortened at it starts with "anne"... but we don't love this shortened alternative (although I guess she could use it if she got older and was fed up).
