I personally dislike Bailey. I just can't see it on a grown woman. If you do use it though, I'd stick to the simplest/most popular spelling. The others look too made-up IMO.

I agree with Melissa. Bailey is the best spelling.

The only two spellings I can recommend using are Bailey and Baillie.

Bailey because it is the "original" spelling, and also the most intuitive. Most people copying it down will try that spelling first. When she does have to spell it, B-A-I-L-E-Y is a lot less exhausting to repeat than B-A-Y-E-L-E-I-G-H or anything longer like that.

Baillie I would be okay with because of the famous Scottish family by that surname (as in Lady Grizel Baillie). And as luck would have it, this spelling isn't much longer than the other.

I like the name Bailey, but I would spell it Baylee if I used it.

I only like Bailey. That's how most people will assume it is spelled, and it would be a lot of trouble for her to have to keep correcting people if you spelled it differently. I can also imagine a grown woman named Bailey, but I can only see Baileigh, Bayli, Baylee, etc. on a little girl. Paople would probably pronounce Bailea or Baylea as Bay-Leah too.
