    Not at all.

    My DDs have easy spelling but not so common names with meaning.

    Plus L's middle name has the same meaning as her fathers first name. And A's middle name has the same meaning as my first.

    Well thought out planned names I love.

    Like, when you get married for example?

    I'm another with the Leila/Leela/Layla problem.

    I have beautiful Leila and she is pronounced Leela, but we get people saying Layla or even Lylah all the time!

    I honestly thought Leila was the easiest way to spell it for everyone without any confusion.

    She is 7 weeks old and it annoys me to no end that mil STILL calls her Layla.

    First world problem!

    lol @ FL
    we didn't give the slightest thought to the spelling of Dd2's name until we were asked right after she was born lol. We agreed immediate and we would never change it

    Ive agonized over the spelling of katelyn. I feel like such a bogan spelling it katelyn... But if she shortened it to Kate I want the spelling rule to stay the same and Cait looks ridiculous imo.

    But I feel bad not giving her a traditionally spelled name! As in Caitlin.

    OP - yep change it, especially if it's to make life easier and avoid confusion.

    I am a very strong believer in traditional spellings. Although as a PP said, people still get it wrong! It's always funny when people ask me to spell my name and I say, 'the traditional way' and they still have a blank look on their face.

    ETA: wasn't having a go at previous post, posted simultaneously...that makes sense to keep the nickname in mind when choosing a spelling and Katelyn is lovely!

    A limb is what you were born with (hopefully)

    It took us a fortnight to name katelyn and 5 weeks to committ to filling out her birth certificate. And shes the one who has to live with it. I fully support her changing the spelling or changing her name. We agonized over naming her and if she feels we got it wrong she can change when shes 18.

    Nope!
    For the first few weeks of dd life I spelt her name with an E on the end :s I don't know why or how I managed it as her birth certificate doesn't have an E..? So glad it's Blair as I don't like it spelt Blaire
    When ds was born someone said they would like his name better with a K and I think it looks a bit.. Tacky. If that makes sense. Hehe won't say the name incase I offend! but meh my kid my spelling
