So if I am indeed having a baby girl in January (will know for sure next week)I have decided on a name but cant decide on which way to spell it...

which do you like better?
Alayna(h?)
Elayna(h?)

Middle name will be Dawn because every woman in my family has the middle name Dawn.

Thanks!

When I see those spellings I see 2 different names... If it is said Allyana I'd spell with the A, if it's said Ellie-ana I'd go with the E.

I think it depends on if you are pronouncing it "Uh-lay-nuh" or "E-lay-nuh"

Phonetically, those are two different names. If it is absolutely going to be one of those spellings, pick the one that goes with the way you want the name to be said. Just be ready for her to have a lifetime of what crunchywannabe just did, thinking the random extra letters also mean an extra syllable.

I agree that it depends on which way you like it to be pronounced. Im undecided, I like Alayna, but like the possible nn Elle or Ellie with Elayna.

I come from an Italian family so the first letter of the word would be either an "A" sound or an "E" and we would stress it ...I prefer the name beginning with A
