Yoo-neek & Cre8ive? Or fine?
The girl choosing name saga continues for me.
Okay, I'm still really liking "Alair" which I had never heard of until I googled "names that mean happy."
It's just that I prefer the spelling "Elair" which is not a name, at least not one that I can find. I like Elair better because it gives the nickname "Elle" and it is more intuitive to pronounce. For example, "Alaire" could be AH-lare or UH-lair. I like "UH-lare" or "EL-are" the best.
Since it's a totally uncommon name anyway can I adopt an alternative spelling that I prefer? Or am I just as bad as Caydence/Khloe/Mykynzeee's moms?Latest list:
Girl: Lulu, Charlie, Fleur, France, Holiday
Boy: Lennox (Lex), Hugo
Expecting my first.

Elair and Alair are pronounced differently.
EH-lair or EE-lair
UH-Lair or AH-lair
So it's not about screwing up the spelling, it's about what pronunciatino you want. spell it the way you want it said.
For the UH-lair pronunciation, use Alair.
For the EH-lair pronunciation, I'd spell it Ellair; the two Ls help with the EH sound.I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.

Elair looks like you forgot the c for Eclair to me. Sorry.
Celianne's suggestion of Ellair definitely helps with that.Aurelia - Endora - Illyria - Lorelei - Merida - Ofelia - Penrose - Tabitha - Viola - Zenobia
