I voted Rivkah, somehow the "h" finishes it, if that makes sense.

If I was writing down the name, say as her pediatrician's receptionist , I would write RIVKA. That's just the spelling I would assume.

But if I was choosing between them, I have to say I like the look of RIVKAH better.

Thanks, ladies! Some times I am in love with the simplicity of Rivka and other days I like the finished look or Rivkah.

I think I like the way Rivkah looks better, but I don't want my daughter to go through life correcting people about her name, and I think most people would assume it is spelled Rivka...
