Thread: Guilty-pleasure SPELLINGS?
August 23rd, 2013 03:17 PM #41
Poor Megan. I do bad things to her, turning her into Meghan and Meggan, and I do it with a smile.
Jessamyn...flagrant abuse of the letter Y, but it's a family spelling, and I've grown to like the look of it more than Jessamine.
Briony: Again, with the Y, but this time I take it out for no good reason. It belongs in Bryony, and I know it. Briony is very Atonement.
I used Shaun in a story because I wanted a name that was familiar--but a little "off"--for a troubled character. I have grown to like it more than Sean or Shawn. Whoops.
Winnifred: I slightly prefer Winifred now, but I threw this extra N in for the longest time. When I'm typing the name, I still include it without thinking.
I also have some names where I prefer a certain spelling over the most common and/or original one, but I don't feel any guilt about these: Elinor, Marion, Kaitlin, Rebekah, Gillian, Clare, Lillie, Bryce.----
