So we had decided to name our little girl Casey. But i heard DH on the phone the other night and he was telling someone and then spelled it out... Casie. Now we have a little debate on the spelling. I think Casie looks like it would be pronounced Cass-ie. and he thinks Casey reminds him of a boys name. What do ya'll think? I don't mind Casie all too much but I don't want her to have to correct people all her life. I have an odd name and it's a pain to have people constantly mispronounce and misspell my name Opinions??

I actually prefer Kasey for a girl. Casey looks like a more masculine spelling to me, and Casie looks like Cassie misspelled.

I think Casie looks like Cassie... I would never think Casey from that spelling. Casey is cute for a girl or a boy... if you wanted to change the spelling, then I'd probably make the C a K, but I don't think the spelling needs to be changed.

I did know a girl with this name and it was spelled Kaycee... dunno if you like that or not.

I agree that Casie looks like Cassie. I would stick with the EY. I do think Kasey or Kacey makes it more femanine, and it goes well with Kendall.

Out of the all the spellings I have seen in this thread my favorite for a girl is Kacey. Casie to me looks like Cassie as well.

I like Kacey too. That's how my SIL has her's spelled and I think it looks prettier that way. BTW virgoprincess99 I love the way you spell your name. (Obviously!)

I think Casie looks too much like Cassie, you're right...as for Casey, while it's spelled the same way as the masculine version, it still works really well for a girl. No one will mistake the pronounciation, so that's good! I like Casey the best.

Thanks for the input! I thought about Kasey but the whole point was to honor my grandmother's maiden name (Cason)

I like the spelling Kasey for a girl, Casey looks too much like the boy spelling.
