What about Devney (dev-knee)? I know a Devney, and I've never met another.

Upon first glance I'd probably pronounce it like Delilah (it looks so similar!) and De-vuh-nee. I prefer the Delilah spelling and I've only seen the 2nd spelled as Devonney.

I just had my first baby in May and I named her Dalila and I get so frustraited because everyone says Delilah. It makes me want to change her name because she is going to have to correct people her whole life. Delilah in the Bible (Samson and Delilah) was a trator!! lol I know a girl who named her daughter Jezzabell. I think why would you do that because that means *****! People think they are being unique by taking a common name and spelling it different. If you really want to be unique do some research! I think people just don't know how to spell.

I would pronounce Dalila: Duh-LI-lah
I would pronounce Devany: DAY-ven-ee
My DB's name is Devan, pronounced DAY-vin, so I'm used to that spelling.
