Maile vs. Miley
I have a close friend named Maile (pronounced My-lee). It is a Hawaiian name, and I have always thought it is very pretty. Maile is the name of the vine that is used to make Hawaiian leis. My concern in using it for my daughter is the spelling. I know my friend has had to deal with her name being misspelled and mispronounced for the past 40 years, so I am considering an alternate spelling -- Miley. But...with the recent popularity of Miley Cyrus I am wondering if this may be too trendy. I would appreciate what others think. Also, if you have suggestions of a middle name, or a first name that goes with Miley as a mn, I am all ears!
