Which is your favorite spelling of these names and why?
is my name so... biased.
(bree-AHN-ah would be Briana
Which other spellings of these names do you find tolerable?
HAY-den: Only Hayden
(although the 'y' is sooo much better!! lol)
MAD-eh-linn: Stubbornly Madeleine
only because it's gorgeous
If you met anyone with these names, how would you assume they were spelled?
Basically I'd hope they'd be spelled how I like. I'd probably instinctively spell it how I like or just flat out ask how they spell it.
Are there any spellings of these names you really hate? Or any endings, letter combinations you really hate and why?
(too many 'y's and it looks heavy)
(this name is hideous so it doesn't matter how it's spelled)
KATE-linn: Kaitlynne (or any elaboration of the "lin" ending. Just too much, trying to hard)
KAY-linn: See KATE-linn
AL-i-sen: None, really.
JAY-den: Hate this name so any.
KAY-den: JAY-den ditto
HAY-den: Any other than Hayden
because it is lame.
AY-den: Anything other than Aiden
because it's trying too hard to be different.
KATH-rinn: Anything different than the standard. Stop butchering classic names, please. (not you specifically--just the general populous)
bree-ANN-a: All ugly.
is one I don't hate but drastically like Zoey
Mak-AY-la: Anything other than Michaela
MAD-eh-linn: Anything other than Madeleine
looks sad. I'm picky with some of these names apparently...
How many people with these names have you known? Approximate age? Siblings?
HAY-lee--A few. Mostly in high school so they'd be in their 20s now. I don't know about their siblings. I've never been friends with someone named Hailey/variants. Although one Hailey
(and I think it is this spelling) had a sister Rachel
KAY-lee: Uhm... 1 or 2. And not super-personally. They were a few years younger than me.
CAR-lee: 6. And each of them just as horrible as the last. Hideous name for hideous girls.
KATE-linn: A LOT
. And I'm one of them! My siblings are Candice
. Most other KATE-linns I've met were usually only children though.
KAY-linn: 1. She was snooty.
AL-i-sen: A fair few. About my age, a little older.
JAY-den: 0 thank goodness
KAY-den: 0 whoo-hoo
HAY-den: 1 or 2 in passing. Early 20s
AY-den: 0 :)
KATH-rinn: About 200. Every Katie
I meet is either Kaitlyn
bree-ANN-a: 1. And she was scary. Late teens/early 20s
ZO-ee: 0 thank goodness. Please no one ruin this name for me.
Mak-AY-la: about 2 and they were about 5 years older than me
MAD-eh-linn: If I include all the spellings probably about 10. Older and younger than me.
