Rebecca vs. Rebekah

Hi there, I have always wanted to call my daughter Rebekah/ Rebecca since I was very small. However, now I have the opportunity I’m totally stuck for which spelling. I feel biased toward Rebekah in one way, as I first loved the name as I was a huge fan of a beautiful Australian soap star - Rebekah Elmaloglou from Home and Away) BUT some people have suggested to me that the Rebekah spelling might appear to be a spelling mistake, or worse still a cre8ve choice (despite the fact this is the first biblical version of the name.) All that said I have no problem with the Rebecca spelling either. Your honest opinion s what I’d really like. MN suggestion welcome too. Thankyou. XxX

Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
