I'll reiterate.. If you as the parent regret the way you spelt it.. Would you change it before they start school?? Even if it's only 6 months before school starts?

My name is Rachell (as in the common everyday name Rachel/Rachael.)
All my sisters have double letters in there names so mum and dad decided to spell mine "ell" instead of the "el" or "ael"
I CONSTANTLY get called "Rachelle (Ro-shell)" I use to hate it and then started giving up and never corrected people. But now that I'm older I kinda like it, I don't mind any more if people pronounce it differently, nice to have a change every now and again lol.
But AMEN to the no personalized cups or plates with my spelling on there
It's a big thing when your 8!

6 months before school starts would be fine.
I don't know if I would do it whilst he was at school though.
**Some one correct me if I'm wrong**
But when filling out school forms can you put his "given name" but his "preferred name or known as"
If the changing of spelling is for school purposes?
But if your unhappy with the spelling, the I can't see a huge issue in changing it legally.

Yes, I would change the spelling at that age, but not the actual name itself.
Now I want to know what your sons name is and how it's spelt!

Chanel would look even more bogan if I changed it to "Schanelle," or something horrid like that.

Never and personally I don't think your name should ever be changed in any way. It's what you were born with and that's it.
