Reply to: Spelling by Isis

Isabelle - Isabel doesn't look complete to me
Claire - same as Isabel
Catherine - not a fan of Y spellings, although I prefer Kathryn over Kaitlyn
Kay - I feel like Kay was the original name, and the e was tacked on to make it look like a variation on Faye
Aveline - Evelyn sound sort of boyish to me, and I'm not a fan of Y spellings
Sara - Sara(h) is so bland to me, but Sara is redeemed a little by The Little Princess
Mark - I'd name a son Mark as a full name, but Marc if it was a nn for Marcus or Marco
Luke - I live in an English speaking country, not a French one
Jack - ditto Luke
Niahm - isn't the spelling Niamh? Anyways, I much prefer Irish spellings to anglicized ones
Sean - ditto Niamh
Celine - it gives a more refined, elegant feel than the slippery-smooth Selene
Christina - not a fan of K names
Alan - sounds more handsome
