    The crazy spellings drive me nuts too, especially when they spell a common name in such a weird way that you don't know how to pronounce it, and then it turns out it's something simple, like "Karen".

    I really do not care what other people name their children. It is a special give a parent gives their child.

    True, but I do get angry when people make up their own spellings of names and then get angry that there is no personalized items for their child. My DH's cousin is like that, she made up a spelling of Erica and gets mad at anyone who spells it wrong and rages because she can't buy a cup or whatever with Airyka's name on it.

    I have two middle names But they are made into one. It is EmmaLynn after my two aunts. None of my kids have 2 middle names though, in fact, I dont think anyone in our family does. Both our boys have last names for middle names though....which I have actually found leads to confusion sometimes.

    Sometimes it's a curse a parent gives their child.

    My son has two middle names, he is named after his two great grand fathers and my brother. the first names of both great grandfathers which are the middle names of my brother. My Grandad had passed a few months before I fell pregnant. I did consider adding a second middle name to our chosen girls name to honour my Nanna who passed away on Christmas day, but it is then way too long (Abigail Jacqueline Florence).

    I'm pretty much everything most people seem to hate in naming for DS though, we have an alternative spelling of his first name as well, but it's a legitimate spelling just from another culture

    I think there is a difference between alternate spellings and cre8tive spellings. Someone I know (but don't like very much) recently indicated that she thought it was dumb that we didn't spell our son's name "Reed" because "Reid" is "harder." True, but Reid is the legitimate Scottish spelling of it, and a "reed" is a plant that lives by water. I don't mind alternative spellings unless they get too wacky. Sorry, but "Airyka" is a bit over the top.

    It's only the made-up spellings that drive me nuts. I like interesting spellings from other places. I remember the first time I met a Siobhan, it took me forever to remember how to say it and now it seems totally normal to me, and fairly common.

    Airyka is fine if you don't mind correcting people a lot and don't expect to find personalized things in souvenir stores.

    I thought I used a common spelling for Corinne...but everyone pronounces it "Car-een" or what to spell it Corrine. Which to me, is
    "Car-een". So I guess I used an alternate spelling although I always knew it to be the right spelling haha.

    Alternate is fine. Made up is another. And adding double letters when there is no need for it. Using Ks for Cs (I knew a Jessika and a Jessicah. Both names not cool.)

    Yeah, in the grand scheme of things its not something that keeps me up at night or anything......I just like monograms a lot and ....well, you know. And I think that marriage already presents enough challenges to a woman (like, drop her middle or keep her maiden)....that I can't even imagine what happens when 5 names enter the debacle.

    Super not fan of made up names. I have a friend who named her daughter her maiden name. Ryker. The following kid was Piper (they rhyme, to me). We were all worried that the next one would be diaper. The worst ever IMO were the twins named Atom and Zero.

    Zero. Ones name would be ZERO. I'll take the heat. I don't care. That is awful.
