Wah Wah Wednesdays – Typical names spelled differently

Why bother changing the spelling of a typical name? I don’t understand the people that try to make their child unique by changing letters in their name, or coming up with hideous conglomerations of names just so that they stand out. Honestly, it’s not going to make your name any more unique. It’s just going to cause frustration for your kids when they have to spell out their name every time they go somewhere for the REST OF THEIR LIFE. There’s nothing wrong with the name Tiffany. Don’t bastardize it and make it “Typhanie”, because that’s just awful. I can understand if you use a word from another language (If I have a daughter, I want to name her Chaitri, which is the first full moon day in the month of Chaitra in India), but changing the spelling of an already existing name isn’t as creative as you think. I’m not saying you should go all Frank Zappa on your kids for originality, but just have some discretion.
