My second daughter will be named Morgaine. From the book The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

Morgaine Faelynn (a play off of Morgan LaFaye).

Morgaine Faelynn.[/b]
I have a question about Fae/Fay/Faye. I love that it means fairy, love it. Love fairies.
But I dislike the sound of it and it doesn't appeal to me as a whole name but I had an aunt named Faye, who passed away from cancer recently and it would be nice to use it.
Which spelling should I use? Could I find a more suitable variant??

I love Morgana, it's actually a painting by Amy Brown and I love her. (She's a fairy! Aw.)

Morgan of the faeries

Well I had actually made up Faelynn... then later saw a varient of it at babynames.com: Faylinn: http://www.babynames.com/Names/name_display.php?id=1315 There it says it means "Graceful Woman"... but I've also seen it elsewhere with the meaning "Fairy Kingdom". *shrugs* I thought I made it up, lol.

I'm sure you could find a varient. Personally I like the spelling Fae... but thats because of the way I spell faery.

I think Morgaine or Morgana are cute (don't care for Morgan) but they're both a little too stereotypical to me. You know, all the little witchlings named Morgaine, I don't know, maybe it's just me.

I don't like the name Morgan. Morgaine is a bit odd to me. But I think Morgana is interesting!

I teach British Literature, so I spend a lot of time with Morgan la Fay, and while I love the name, it's hard for me to get beyond the fact that in most versions of the Arthurian legend, she sleeps with her brother and spends most of her life being manipulative and mean. Still, I like the name. (Oh, and in the traditional Arthurian legend, Fay means "fate".)
