My mom named me after the restaurant called Alyce's. People pronounce it as Alice. Yes, I answer to it when I have to then I correct the person. To the other Alyce's, we can make a group. :)

My name is Allyce with an extra l. The same as the actress Allyce Beasley, both pronounced the same as Alice. I personally love how my name is spelt, it's lovely to have a unique name, and almost everybody I meet pronounces my name correctly first time they say it.

No it's NOT Alice. It's not an alternative spelling for Alice. It is Alyce and pronounced Aleeese and it can also be spelt Alyse Elise. Why would you name your child Alice with a 'y' instead of an 'I'? You're just confusing people and undoing every Alyce in the world that has to correct people and tell them it is NOT ALICE! I love when people pronounce it properly the first time. It makes me think there are smart people out there that realize there must be a difference in pronunciation if it has a 'y' in it.

I knew a girl who spelled it Alyce but pronounced it like Elise with an 'a'.

My daughter's name is Alyce (pronounced like Alice). She's 3, almost 4 and she loves her name. Everyone I talk to says her name is so pretty and they love the way it's spelled because it's unique. I like names that are unique but simple enough for them to not get made fun of. My other kids names are Wyatt-boy and Lenna-girl.

I personally don't like it spelled with a Y. Stick to an I.

This name looks ugly and trashy. Just stick to Alice.

It's pronounced Uh-leese, with the A as an 'uh' sound, stressing leese rather than the other way around as in ALice. It is not Alice with a y. It is an alternative spelling of the name Elise, which is said exactly the same as Alyce (or Alyse, or Elyse).

The name of the mother in the 80s tv show 'Family Ties' was called Alyce (might have been spelt Elyse but it's said exactly the same).

It's my name, and I like it. I used to hate it because everyone mispronounces it, but now think it's quite pretty. It's good having a name that almost no one else has. I've never met another Alyce spelt the same way as mine, only an Elise and an Alyse. It's kind of an old-fashioned name, but sweet.

Why do people feel the need to shove a 'y' everywhere nowadays? Is it to balance out the times when people shoved an 'i' everywhere?

Ruining perfectly good names? I personally happen to like this spelling--it's different, and interesting, (how often do you see a "y" in the middle of a name?) not that there was anything wrong with the original "i" spelling.

But you should know, if you look at the "Popularity" section for this spelling--it was most popular during the early 1900s, so this isn't something "stupid" recent people are doing.

"How often do you see a "y" in the middle of a name?"

It's actually a pretty popular naming trend as of late.

NO NO NO! It's Alice with an I, why are people ruining perfectly good names. Stupidity.

This name isn't always pronounced AL-is, or the same as 'Alice', but also 'A-leese', which is more similar to the French pronunciation of 'Alice'.
