    While we're airing our name grievances, and not to offend, but I don't like same initials for names in the family. Too cutesy for me. Like Melissa, it doesn't keep me up all night but it isn't my thing. I was concerned for a hot minute that Corinne and dh share an initial.

    Ryker is odd. Maiden name or not.

    I saw the name Pieper the other day. Just call her Piper please. It's different enough as it is.

    So the kids with two middle names - what do they do when they're filling out paper work and have to supply a middle name? Usually there is only one box, so do they just pick their favorite?

    I'm not a huge fan of it, but like others I won't lose sleep over it. But the made-up names/purposely spelled in odd ways do bug me.

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.
    Airyka is over the top and she gets mad when people spell it wrong. I have to look it up everytime... DH uses the Irish spelling of Sean, he was going to be named Paul and then he was born on his cousin John's birthday so my MIL figured she needed to name him John. There were too many "John"s already in the family so she went with the Irish version of John. Funny thing, I am the one with the Irish heritage, DH is Scottish.

    I would pronounce Corinne as Core-een. Am I wrong?

    My SIL still can not spell Margaret and she has been married to my brother for 24 years! She will spell it Margarette, Margerat, and a few others. Whenever I get a card from her there is at least 3 different spellings all incorrect. I just laugh at it.

    The creative spelling mess me up with my dyslexia. I gave my niece heck for spelling her daughter's name Jordyn (and Jordyn is named for one the "J" boys I mentioned earlier), she just laughed at me.

    We pronounce it "Ca-rinne" and everyone I've ever met with that name spelled it the way we do. Everyone I've met named "Careen" spells it differently.

    Most forms I fill in just have a line for middle name, my brother has never had any difficulties. Most things he gets just have S____ F____ Surname and don't add in the second, or use the initials for the two middle names so S____ F N surname.

    Zero?!? OMG that's sooooo mean. Atom is kind of weird, but at least it kind of sounds like Adam. Zero is just....mean.

    I would pronounce Corinne like "Core-inn." Is that right?

    That's how Elizabeth says it Alissa . It is the real way but I'm from Mass...so the R isn't strong.

    This is also how I've heard Corinne, and pronounce it the same way.

    My BFF's family has a tradition where all of the women have 3 middle names. The first and third middles names must rhyme. To me, it's excessive and seems to cause more of a headache (i.e. birth certificates, any document requiring full name) than necessary. Of course, to their family it's tradition and its something special the girls share. It works for them, but I myself am a fan of simple First Middle Last.
    Super ridiculous and/or crazy spellings for names make my eye twitch.
