    Question Linnea - lyrical or lots of prn issues?

    Hi Berries.

    Just reading the Baby Names 2013 predictions blog and came across the name Linnea. Once I looked up the prn (Li-nay-ah) I found it to be quite lyrical and pretty. However, since I had to look the prn up, would this translate into every day confusion for people who saw the name, and then into a life-long explanation for a little princess called Linnea? Would a change of spelling help, or is traditional best in this case? WDYT?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

    I like the name Linnea. Not enough to use, but I think it's pretty. There probably will be people unfamiliar with the name and might say "lynn-ee-ah" but I think once corrected they'll get it.

    I like it! love the sound. It's different, but not so different that it would stump people.

    Beautiful name, I don't think it would be too hard for people to understand after hearing it.

    I know a Linnea in her 30s & I might not have guessed the proper spelling...Lynnaya might have been how I would butcher it! But I liked it even more once seeing how attractive the proper spelling looks!

    I love the name!
