View Poll Results: What is your spelling preference for names?
Say Michaela. Mikayla and other nontraditional spellings rank higher in the popularity charts than the original spelling, Michaela, does. Does that mean Mikayla is the normal spelling and Michaela is a unique spelling, because Mikayla is more popular?
I'd choose "the traditional spelling" instead of "normal".
I think it all depends on the name and the variation of that name. My name is not spelled 'traditionally' and is definitely more complicated than the norm, Ashley. But with how popular that name is now, not when I was growing up, though, I would never think of spelling it any other way.
Oh, and I had no trouble learning to spell my name. Even with 2 middle names on top of it.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my awesome siggy!
I am peace, full of unconditional love. I am confident and in tune with the Divine, receptive to guidance.
