I decided to play around with the spellings of some of our members. What do you think?

Maggie-Maggy-Maggi
Callum-Kallum
Zayda-Zaida-Zada
Evy-Evie-Evi-Evee
Cadence-Kadence-Cadense-Kadense
Hayden-Haden-Haiden-Haydin-Haydyn-Hadyn
Mason-Masen-Masin
Emily-Emmalie-Emelie-Emmily-Emilly
Yasmine-Yazmyn-Yazmin-Yasmyne

I only used some names. Feel free to add other members. Didn't mean to butcher all these names. Just wondering if you prefered any alternate spellings.

I like:
Maggie
Callum
Zayda
Evie
Cadence
Hayden
Mason
Emelie--Emily is such a nice name, but its so over used. i think a different spelling would make is refreshing and uinque
Yasmine

So for the most part, I like the traditional spelling of everyone's name.

Other members:
Keira-Kiera-Keara-Kira
Ashleigh-Ashley-Ashlie (Ally-Allie-Aly-Ali)
Alyssa-Alissa
Aden-Aiden-Aidan
Ryan-Ryanne
Hannah-Hanna

Zayda-Zaida-Zada


No. Just please, no!

For half my life, my father thought my name was spelt Zaida. Yup, the man who gave me life didn't know how to spell my name. And for a good 3 years, my boss at the school that I teach at would spell my name in all the memos "Zada". I didn't correct him because I was new but I hated it!

Other 'butchered' spellings of my name: (I hate them all)

Sayda
Seida
Cayda (<-- o.O)

No, Zayda is a beautiful spelling!

Alternatives for Rosie; Rosy, Rosey, Rosi, Rosee but I prefer just Rosie!
Someone once spelt Scott with one 't' - Scot like the Scottish, not for us!

The only alternatives I like are;
Aiden, Aaden, Aidan
Ashley, Ashlie, Ashlee
Ryann, Ryanne
Alissa
Evie
Yasmin, Yazmin, Yazmine

    Nathan: I like hanging out with friends, band (trombone), marching band, pep band, watching movies, football, playing with my daughter, taking walks as a family.

Posted 08 July 2009 - 06:51 PM

I have always thought that Kadence was neat. It's a name of a cadence that my cousin's marching band plays (although its called Cadence with a K).

Oh and Nathan's parents were going to spell his name Nathyn (to go along with the "y" theme of his other siblings). I have also seen Nathen, Nathin, Nathon, and Nathyn. Crazy! :D

I know Kehli's parents had a lot of debates about her name.

They were thinking of:

Kehliann/Kelliann/Kellyann/Kehlianne/Kellianne/Kellyanne

But as the story goes, they settled on Kehliann because it was a good compromise of what they both wanted. I definitely prefer Kehliann over all the options. But then again, she's my wife. Even if I didn't like her name spelling, I would always say I did. :blink:

I have never ever met another Deysi - And I doubt i will ever, but it's a small world.

Spellings of my name:

Daisy (Of course)
Deisy (My whole family thougth I was Deisy until I got my ID card, lol!)
Deysi

Please don't tell me there are people crazy enough to come up with Daysy or something like that.

P.S: I ***hate*** it when people call me "Dizzy", it's beyong annoying! They pronounce the "z" and everything! Grrrrrr!

Aww! I'd keep all the names as is! Except Yasmine.. I MUCH prefer Yazmin.. though it would get on my nerves after a while.. and doesn't seem so elegant now that i think about it.. :S

And Ash, i ADORE the spelling Ashlie! *Ashleigh and Ashlie are my favourites!* ;]

Jenn.. Gennipher.. Really?! :blink: That's just plain awkward!
