We are having a daughter to be named Evangeline. However, I want it pronounced e-VAN-gel-in. I'm afraid that people will constantly be saying e-VAN-gel-EEn.
I was thinking of spelling the new baby's name this way: Evangelyn. Would this spelling help with the pronunciation? Does it look made up? My husband thinks so. He wants to use the traditional spelling. I suppose it's not THAT big of a deal to correct people, but I'd like to avoid it if possible. My other daughter is named Karolina (karo-lee-nah), and no one ever gets that right.
