It makes sense to me. A lot of parents of young kids grew up as Jen B. or Jen Y. ect that made them value unique names above all else. And they probably grew up loving Chloe & Bella and loving how rare & special they felt. So that explains Klooee & Izybella ect. once all of those special feeling names stopped feeling so special.
Every parent wants to give something to their child with their name choice & it looks like different & special was the intention here!
A lot of Berries look down on these names...yourself included it seems.
I wouldn't use any of these names but I don't stand in harsher judgment of them than some of the pretentious stuff I often see on here...
Calling your community illiterate is pretty harsh.
One definition of illiteracy is: "Displaying a marked lack of knowledge in a particular field." So, in this case - as names have correct spellings just the same as other words in the English language - it would seem that parents have a marked lack of knowledge in the execution of spelling certain names.
You wouldn't go around spelling chair, cloud and flapjack as khaer, klowed and phlapgaq. So why is spelling names wrong considered acceptable?
I'm lost for words after reading that list.........
We shoulde pretende that this is a kindrid era to that of Elizabethan times, an epoche in which names and words were never misspelt--only more decorativ and free from restrictionnes. (sic)
I don't think spelling chair as khaer is the same because it has one spelling while names have many spellings from region to region & that have become common over time like Catherine, Katherine, Kathryn or Cathryn. I think because names are how we identify ourselves the spellings & pronunciations aren't as set in stone and are likely to change & shift faster than the rest of language.
I think comparing the real problem of illiteracy to the personal choice to spell your child's name differently is harsh.
I love talking about names, not sitting in judgment of people because I am bored. To me it's more interesting to think about why people do or don't gravitate toward Y heavy names & if they're dated or not rather than list a bunch of actual children's names & talk about how much better we all must be than their parents.
