    Are there any names where you like the spelling but not the pronunciation?

    For example I love how names like Leopold, Junia, and Thalassa look on paper but not how they are said out loud.

    Names I like on paper but I would be hesitant to use only because people might have pronunciation issues.

    I like the Madeline spelling but prefer the Madalynn pronunciation.

    Well, I have to admit not only did I find a name I loved the look of but I used it too!

    My daughter's name is Johanna - but we pronounce with a silent haitch - Jo-anna. I chose the Johanna spelling because Joanna looked just like a long squiggle when it was written out and it bugged. We just correct people.

    I like Amelie, but I disklike the pronunciation "Emilie" I like it said as Ay-mah-lee. When I say it it sounds french and just absolutely adore the sound of it.
