That you love the sound if, but hate the way they look?

Dh and I both love the way Blakely sounds but I hate the way it looks, in all spelling forms.

The sound OF. Dang autocorrect

Sadie...I see 'sad' or 'die' no matter how I look at it

Graeme (Gray-um)

I know there is more but I can only think of these two for now.

Isla. I love it official pronunciation. But I can't stand its spelling and I can't even think of a good way to spell it otherwise. I have seen Ayla (which I see as being A-lah) and Ilah (which is just think is ugly looking).

I would have to say that I don't like the look of any name that doesn't sound the way it is spelled. For example, Sean.

Yeah, Ayla is a separate name from Isla. Isla is said eye-la, whereas Ayla is say eh-la (or Kayla without an K).

Sean/Shaun/Shawn. I like the name, but none of the spellings look right to me. Shawn is passable, but it still bugs me.

You could do Eila/Eilah or Aila...I think I still like Isla better though.

I thought I already posted this but Landry is another one for me. It sounds cute but looks too close to Laundry.
