    I'm sorry to hear of your grandmother's illness. I think the Swedish spelling of Elin is beautiful in its simplicity. I like it better than the similar Ellen. Sorry but I don't find Elyin very appealing with the "y". When I saw it, I wanted to pronounce it "ellie-in". I think this spelling may give you more pronunciation headaches than Elin. Do you like Helen, Helena, Elena or Elaina as alternatives to Elin? I guess you could always spell it Elyn.
    All the best,
    Mischa.

    I would stick with the traditional spelling. If I saw the name Elyin, I would automatically pronounce it el-yin.

    Given all of the press that Tiger Woods's wife has received, I would think more people are familiar with the name, Elin, as it is.
