    Recent horrific spellings from hospital birth list

    I don't know why--but it seems that the area of the country that I live in likes to butcher names with a vengeance. Here are a few from 2013 that are especially horrific:

    Jewel-Leigh (Julie)
    Aroyoll (Ariel)
    Zepplyn (girl)
    Khylan (boy)
    Sydnee (girl)
    Devlynn (girl)
    Ferhyn (girl)
    Waverlee
    Massiah (boy)
    Dezaree

    I don't think it's just your part of the world. It seems that kre8tiv spellings have spread like a plague across the land.

    What I find interesting is that a lot of the mothers also have kre8tiv spellings also. I think the conventional wisdom is that the kid's will suffer and not thank their parents for the horrible spellings, but in my job, I've dealt with a lot of families where the moms had a horribly spelled name too, and chose to do the same to their kid!

    I've found this to be true, as well. I know of a Tylar (female, pn ty-lar, like Lara Bar) and named he daughter Spencer. I also have a friend named Kristyn and recently named her son Maysin.

    I've never been a fan of kre8tiv spelling of names. I feel bad for the kids who have to go to school with those names!
    I would hate to have to explain how to spell or pronounce my name. Luckily my parents gave my siblings and I normal names
    Eudora - Casilda - Violetta - Odelia - Leocadia - Odette - Isolde - Valentine - Leopoldine - Isadora
    Eulalia - Aurelia - Marigold - Ariadne - Viola - Cosima - Philomena
    Averil - Caius - Casimir - Basil - Ignatius - Benedict - Thaddeus - Raphael - Leopold - Clement
    Cassian - Isidore - Wenceslaus - Balthasar - Arlo - Gilbert - Cornelius - Augustine - Carlisle
