"which way looks right to you?"

Emily.

I wouldn't misspell it. Esp since you already have 2 "leighs"

I can't imagine how confusing it would be to have the most popular name in the US and then have it mispelt. She'll be constanly correcting people.

If I had to choose one of your spellings, I'd go with Emmaleigh.

I like Emmaleigh. I like how you are doing all the endings of their names the same.

btw, with three girls, you need to come join Moms of Girls!

Another

Emily is such a popular name with that spelling. If you're going to change the spelling of a name to fit your -leigh sibset, I'd probably go with a less popular name.

Some suggestions:
Ainsleigh
Avonleigh
Brynleigh/Brinleigh
Everleigh
Joleigh
Kensleigh
Ryleigh

Good luck! I know it's hard sometimes to find the perfect name/spelling for your sibset.
