    gender/name reveal

    I read in a parenting magazine about a couple who for their gender reveal had their family unscramble the letters in their daughter's name. (They later used the letters to decorate her nursery wall with her name.) It sounded like a great idea, except the name was, in my opinion, an unconventional spelling and a gender-neutral name--Paityn. I don't have any real problem with the name itself, but I was wondering if I was wrong in assuming it was ill-suited to their scramble game.

    I agree that Paityn was ill-suited to the scramble game. As a general rule, a name that looks like the spelling was chosen by playing a scramble game is ill-suited to a scramble game.

    Honestly, I'm just shocked there are people out there still naming their kids Payton... or any badly spelled form of it.

    I like the idea, but if you're going to spell a name wrong, it doesn't really suit the game....
    Also how is it a gender reveal when you pick a unisex name? That could be girl or boy!

    Yeah the Gender reveal part seems a bit lost on this name, but it's a great idea..
