We gave DS a variation of a traditional name, with the less common spelling (I instead of E or IE) and DD has a bog standard top 10 name, we didn't choose either name because or popularity or uneekness, we chose simpily because they where the names and spellings we preferred
The only thing that bugs me a tiny bit is with DS we can never find any of the novelty kids stuff with his name on it but meh, what can you do

i must admit i do turn my nose up at ridiculous made up names, im not usually a judgy person but i think some names are just slack for the child.
i like classic, but im sure more modern people would turn their nose up at the names i like as well.

^^Yeah when my sister was born practically no-one had her name and people used to mispronounce it ALL the time...last year it was number one or two on the popular list

I don't think people should be judged or criticised for spelling their childrens names differently, yes it may seem silly to you, but at least they aren't naming them completely ridiculous names such as 'Facebook' and 'Like' (which has happened in other countries).
A different or unusual spelling imo isn't going to traumatise a child for life, naming them after an internet site most likely will!
