Starr. Like Ringo Starr, the drummer of the Beatles! (That's the first thing I think of when I see it spelt this way, anyway.)

While I like Star already, I can understand if someone were to think Star were a bit pretentious. Starr lessens like likelihood of that, which is why I'm actually fond of this spelling, as it can be given in honor of someone's surname.

My mother has this name, and she loves it. No one ever forgets her name. I really like it too; I am currently fighting with my sibling over which of us will name our daughters Starr. For me, it gives the impression of someone brilliant and pretty, like a star.

This is an awful, tacky name. Star is bad enough, but the extra r just pushes it over the tackiness level. If you can't tell why this is an awful name, then you probably have tacky taste. Sorry.

When I was in grade school, the mayor of New Orleans was nicknamed "Moon". Most unfortunate. I especially hated being teased, "Starr and Moon are having a son." Since then, the name has really worked out for me. It is Dr. Starr now, and pediatric patients love it.

Use Starr if you like the surnames-to-names trend, use Star if you like word names. I personally am inclined towards the spelling of Starr, though I'm not sure why. Starr is a great name to honor a family name with. Both Star and Starr are excellent names, and I don't see them as tacky at all (though I see why one might consider them such).
