Not a horrible name but 'unusual' spelling. Abigayelle.

my parents gave me a normal name but used European spelling with it. it was a constant struggle during the school years and I finally changed it last year. I just hated the way it looked.
I don't think it's entirely fair to say you can't use ethnic spellings just because we don't live in the country native to that spelling. sure, some people might hate the spelling of their name like I did, but others might really enjoy the uniqueness and point of difference. we don't all have to spell our names in the anglicized way because we live in Australia,

Horrible baby names
I have a traditionally spelt and pronounced Scandinavian name. I rarely have people pronounce it properly on the first go. Growing up it annoyed me and I often cursed my parents but now I actually think I have a pretty lovely name. It's different but not unusual. It's actually used fairly often in Australia but pronounced differently and I have had more than one Australian tell me 'in Australia this is your name.' No. My name is my name pronounced how it's pronounced, it doesn't change just because some people think it should be said another way and are too lazy to learn it.

Both my boys have Celtic names. I very nearly went with traditional Irish spelling for DS2 but gave him the anglicised version instead to make it easier for him.

My DP's middle name is Huw. It's very common in Wales. Hugh is the Anglicised version of it. I love it.
