    Laci or Lacey? - Does Unique Spelling Really Make A Name Unique?

    I like the name Noah, but somewhere I saw Noa, saying it was fresh and nice on girls, but it just looks unfinished. Another time, I saw a post saying someone wanted to name their twins Promise and Pashenze (Or something like that). What do you think? And what are your favourite names that are often misspelled?

    I think a misspelled name is a misspelled name, not unique at all. Names are primarily spoken in day-to-day life, so Pashenze is still Passions, Laci is still Lacey. Except now the misspelled name looks downmarket, unprofessional, and juvenile.

    Noa is a separate name from Noah, though. Noa is a girls name, and Noah is a boys name. Both have different meanings.

    To me it doesn't really make a name unique. Unfortunetly a lot of parents have the same "idea" and suddenly you get a lot of Emaleigh/Emmalee's instead of Emily.

    Plus, everyone will assume "emily" first, and that kid would always have to correct them. There are names that have accepted different spellings like Steven/Stephen or Sofia/Sophia. But some of those are because one's a english version, the other's french...etc..

    All of this, but I thought it was Patience, not Passions?

    I thought it was Patience as well.

    Just goes to show why a "unique" name is always so great :P
