This is one of my daughters' middle name. I spelled it like this because both of daughters have y's in their names. But no one would let me "misspell" Samantha so I had to change Jordyn instead.

Using a 'y' in the place of the unstressed vowel in a masculine name doesn't make it sound any more feminine, and it just looks like something young, immature parents would pick to make it appear ''cuter''. This name doesn't sound good on grown women, no matter how masculine or indie they are. Plus, the spelling could lead to credibility issues in this classist world.

The 'y' makes it look strange and made up. Jordana is much, much prettier than this.

I love this spelling of the name for a girl. It sounds to pretty and since I love the name Jordan, it works very well. It doesn't necessarily mean you're an immature parent that thinks it's "cute". It really works. I would love to name a future daughter of mine this.

I really like this name! I say this spelling as JOR-din, while Jordan as JOR-dan, and I like the IN ending more, I would consider it, but it doesn't sound good with my other favourite girl names :(

As Jordan is a unisex name, it seems redundant to feminise it.

I've never quite understood why putting a Y in a name instantly makes it "feminine". Is Harry a "feminine" name because it ends in a Y?

I am an American female named Jordyn. I was born in 1988, a year before the "Y" spelling debuted on the Social Security Administration's list and ten years after "Jordan" as a female name appeared on the list at all. Here are some of my notes on the name:

1. My mother fell in love with the name after reading an article in the January 1981 issue of Good Housekeeping. Debby Boone and her SON Jordan graced the cover. She thought it would be a cute name for a girl. Go figure.

2. Obviously my mother chose the spelling. She felt it was more feminine. As of 2009, the "Y" spelling is more popular for girls, but it's still a pain in the ass to spell it constantly. I have hope the "Y" spelling will eventually be common place.

3. I used to dislike my name, thinking it too masculine, but since the rise of unisex names, I am less self conscious about it. It took me 21 years to get to this place. I feel am "just girly enough" to pull it off.

I always thought this spelling to be ugly, childish, trendoid, and tacky. Contrary to trendy belief, a Y does nyt myke a nyme fymynyne. Jordana is the feminine version of Jordan, not Jordyn. I also want to pronounce this Jor-DINE, not JORD-in. Vowels actually mean something!

This is just awful, stop screwing up spellings and making your child look lower class.
