Everyone’s heard the old trope, “how do you spell the word FISH“, right? The answer: “G.H.O.T.I.” The GH from words like rough, the TI from words such as intuition. English is a funny language.

In efforts to make our children’s lives endlessly more complicated, we’ve embraced such oddities with the naming of our own children.
These gems were all recently spotted on an internet birth board:
Love “Kaylie“ but want to make it unique? Try Kayleigh. Have a hankering for Peyton but don’t want to be associated with Manning? Spell it Peightyn. Perhaps you like Shiloh, but are afraid to look like a Brangelina copycat. Spell it Sheighlough. After all, why not?
