    I like names that mean something . For example people saying if u can't understand it HERE as in Australia? Then they shouldn't use it? That's rubbish. So because u currently live in Aus you should pick a name that Australians can read? Stuff that. If people can't read it they will have to be told once.. And then they can. No big deal imo.
    This is for other country names. Not made up ones I'm talking about!

    I grew up with a super common first name but an insanely rare last name and I got so sick of it. I got sick of arguing with people about how it was spelled. Like actual arguments. In the end I just let everyone mispronounce it and spell it wrong. Now I have a very popular last name and it's so much easier.
    My kids have easy first names and the same easy last name and I made their middle names the crazily spelled names from my heritage. Though Centrelink refuses to spell my daughters middle name correctly and keeps changing it to the "Aussie spelling". Oh well.

    Thank you for sharing
    My DF works with someone named Wolfgang, so I'm used to him referring to him.

    How is Katelijn pronounced?
    Have they given a reason why they won't accept it the way it's spelt? How ridiculous.

    I just realised asking how it's pronounced may seem so rude! Sorry. I'm genuinely curious.

    Not rude at all. That's why I made the "odd names" their middle names. It's pronounced just like Caitlin. They try to spell it Katelyn. It's Dutch, the "ij" makes a "y" sound. My eldest got Wolfgang as his middle name as it's also my fathers middle name and I loved it growing up but wasn't game to give it as a first name and so that's how we started our pattern of giving the foreign names as middle names.

    They aren't allowed to just change the spelling of your child's name. Write them a letter telling them they have incorrectly changed it and provide the birth cert again for verification.
