I like the name Bodhi. I dislike it when people make their kid's names necessarily difficult to spell and pronounce. Especially when it's not spelled the way it sounds! I'm sorry, but Rubye isn't pronounced Ruby! It's pronounced Rub-eye! People are silly. But then again I have a daughter named Fiona, and everyone on that side of the family considers that name to be both hoity-toity and artsy-fartsy. Can't win.
I agree with you on crazy spellings. It is why we are going with the Traditional Sanskrit spelling of Bodhi and not modifying it. Kayeleighe - OMG, that is ridiculous! Poor girl will have to deal with that her entire life, or at least until she turns 18 and can legally change it.
