, Cayleigh, Caleigh
, Caylee (not after the Casey Anthony
Any spelling but Carly
. I do know a Carli, though, and she's made me not hate it.
I haven't seen a spelling that I hate, except for one grotesquely mutilated version of the name that I saw a long time ago. Can't remember how it was spelled.
I don't know... Kalyn
? Kalynn? Kalynne? It looks incomplete without the I or Y after the Ka-
I saw an Allason once. Hated that.
I hate most spellings of this name because I hate the name itself. Jaydon
, Jaidyn, etc.
Haven't seen Hayden
spelled any way other than Hayden
Really, any spelling but Aidan
pisses me off. What a great Irish name that people spoiled.
Not a spelling of Katherine
I don't like.Breana
I really, really, really hate the spelling Zooey.
Any spelling but Michaela
drives me crazy. Makayla
, Makaela, McKeighla... whatever. Gross.
Don't like Madelyn
, but the name is so sweet that I can't hate it.
HAY-lee - too many to count. I've met Hayleys, Haleys, Haileys, and a Hailie
. The one Haley
whose siblings I remember has brothers named Kyle
KAY-lee - I don't know that many, but I don't think it's as popular in my generation as it is in the one being born right now. The one that jumps to mind is spelled Kaleigh
. Don't know her siblings.
CAR-lee - I know a Carli, a Carly
, and a Karlee
. Don't remember siblings.
KATE-linn - OMG SOOOOOO MANY. Kaitlyns, Kaitlins, a Katelynn
, two Caitlins, and a Kaitlan. Don't remember all their sibling names. A Kaitlin
who was a good friend of mine in high school was called Kaity for short and had a sister Erin
KAY-linn - don't know any
AL-i-sen - I know a few. Alison
is the spelling I've seen most. Don't remember sibling names.
JAY-den - don't know any
KAY-den - same
HAY-den - same
AY-den - same
KATH-rinn - I know about a bazillion Katherines/Kathryns, but I don't think I know a Catherine
. One Katherine
has siblings Rocco
, and Erica
. Another Kathryn
has sister Julia
bree-ANN-a - I know a few Breannas and a Briana
has a sister Irene
. Don't remember other sib names.
ZO-ee - I know one Zoe
with siblings (in order from eldest to youngest) Levi
, and Isaac
Mak-AY-la - I know a Mikaela
and a Mikhala. Mikaela
has sister Talia
. Don't remember Mikhala's siblings.
MAD-eh-linn - I know fifty zillion Madelines. No other spellings. One Madeline
has siblings Morgan
(f), Hanley (m), Nate
, and Gavin
. Her family is insanely photogenic and she herself is an incredible person. Love
her to death. I've never met a Madeline
I didn't like, and I know more Madelines than seems appropriate.
Of those names, the only ones I would consider using are Michaela
, and Madeline
is okay too, but the rest of them are insubstantial, trendy, and boring. I would've liked Aidan
a lot more if it hadn't been used into oblivion and trendified.
