    Opinions on my name choice?!

    Hello! I am currently throwing around the name Maille. (May-lee) The reason I like this name is because it is Irish in my name book. However, I really think that people will always be confused on how to pronounce the name if I leave the spelling as it is. So I thought spelling it Mailey would make it easier. The only problem is if I search the name under that spelling, it is no longer Irish but Hawaiian with a completely different meaning. I would like some advice from some of you, I'm not sure if I'm thinking too much into it! Thank you

    I'm pretty stern on keeping with traditional spellings. Mailey looks made up to me. I think more people will mistake it for Miley more than anything else really.
    I wouldn't stray from the original if I were you. The Irish meaning is lovely.

    I agree with stephanie413: keep the name you love with the traditional spelling! Gives it a richer history.

    GORGEOUS choice, by the way!

    Like pp I've seen Maelie before too which is more appealing than Mailey.
