    BTW my third son's first name is Celestin. My mum on hearing it was devastated, said "Oh my God", and for two weeks tried to convince us to change it. Is that really so horrible?
    Others find it rather nice and very suitable for him.

    I absolutely love it! I'm guilty of changing spelling to suit our environment...we named our boy Asa but changed the spelling to Aysah so it would be pronounced Ay-Sah, not A s s-Ah. Didn't help at all. Not once has his name been called correctly We get Asia, Asher, Aysha and once even Ay-ee-say. Really???? I thought we were making things less confusing by changing the spelling but clearly I was wrong.

    People will always misspell
    My name is Iwona and I was already so many different names. Someone at work also called me Lovana so they can be creative.
    I feel as long as you don't be pretentious, not over-do it, and have some nice story behind a name, go for it

    Asa in its traditional form is pronounced 'Asher' We saw it in a name book and thought it was pronounced the same way you've spelled your son's name and we really liked it! But then learned that it's traditionally pronounced as Asher, which is my nephew's name, so had to scratch it from our list!

    We ended up naming DS Jack, and I'm constantly asked to spell that!?!?

    Even with simple names nowadays, like Jack, I always ask people how they spell it. I've had too many people get offended when I spell a name the traditional way and they have used s different spelling.

    Heard one the other day- Bullseye.

    Bullseye.

    There was a sibling too which was almost as bad, but I can't remember now because I just couldn't get over Bullseye.

    I met a little two yr old today, he has ginger hair and freckles....his name is Red.
    I quietly asked my other friend if that's his nickname, nope.
