Only legit, ethnic variations are OK by me.

What I'd like to know is at what point did we start accepting alternative spellings as "legitimate" spellings? If it's one that's used by another culture that's perfectly acceptable but if it's just Kr8ve then it's just misspelled.Josephine Athénaïs - Josephine Ivy - Myriam Athénaïs - Vivienne Josephine
Athena Beatrice - Beatrice Cecile - Eléonor Anne-Sophie -Myriam Beatrice - Meredith ElizabethAmbrose Aristide - Ulysses Aristide

I agree completely. It baffles me that people think common names spelled oddly are "unique." Only the spelling is unique, and unique is not always a good thing.

I totally agree, and what's worse, is that if you say the name wrong, the parent gets all upset.... well if you want me to say it correctly, spell it correctly.
