R&B singer Erykah Badu bears this name.

Erykah Badu's original name was Erica, but she changed the spelling because she believed it was her "slave" name.

I like this spelling better than Erika.

This name makes me shudder. It looks like somebody was trying to use a real name but wasn't sure how to spell it so they made up their own spelling that completely alienates it from the original name. Its spelling is so weird, it doesn't even make me think of Erica.

Agreed! This spelling is ... just wow.

Wow. Just, wow. My name is Erica, and sometimes I like these "modern" spellings, but here it looks like they tried to make Erica or Erika into some type of neo-Arabic name.

I love this name and its spelling. It's good to get creative with names. Sometimes.

I hadn't even known this was a variation of Erica at first glance. This name looks so neat. I really like the spelling for some reason.

The spelling of this name freaks me out man!

What an ugly spelling. I dislike Erykah Badu, and she seems to have a ridiculous reason for changing her name judging by one of the above comments. The H is just superfluous and makes it look even uglier. The spellings Erica, Erika, and even the Polish spelling Eryka are much nicer.

I like this spelling. But, I think it's best left for Erykah Badu.

Woa! Talk about an ugly spelling of a beautiful name!
