We have a Katelan (pronounced Kaitlyn) and an Eithen (Ethan) in our family
Personally, I have never got why people have to ruin perfectly good names by changing the spelling, either to make it "individual" or as "it sounds", just makes it harder on the kids having to constantly having to spell or correct their names. I am not meaning traditional names from other cultures in that statement.

It's the random 'cuteness/bogan-ess' of literally making up names, or deleting/adding letters to otherwise popular names to make them 'different' that I smirk about - again having written this - I know that is exactly what loads of bub Hubbers have done - so all I say to those peeps is if you like it good for you!

a name is only awful or strange when it is alien to you.
My friend called her DD , Bai.
We hated it at first but now that we know the person, its her and there is no way i could hate the name.

I watched this bizarre movie/doco thing that had all these wierd facts and studies (bascially two mathematicans using maths to anaylsis social assumptions). Have no idea what the name was - I can't remember.
Anyway, there was a girl who was called 'temptress' instead of 'temperance' because her mum didn't know how to spell They also looked at 'black' names and the evolution of names over different socio-economic groups.
It was interesting because it proved the beliefs we tend to hold.

I had friends call their daughter Lotus, yeah it can be pretty on its own (makes me think of flowers) but the middle name was Lesley. Kind of killed it
But the cracker is a really young couple I know who think they're really bad-a$$ (think pierced, tattooed, black-wearing 80s Punk types) and called their kid Khaos... I often wonder what the kid will think as he grows up and also wonder how they'll feel about it when they're 50 (both teenagers now)

*Shrug* We named our daughter Boudica. Hence I'm not going to be Frowny McJudgiepants about anyone else's chosen baby name. Pot, kettle, etc.
