Thread: Guilty-pleasure SPELLINGS?

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.----
Mom to N
Malcolm, Tristan, Aaron, Garrett, Vincent
Iris, Bridget, Bonnie, Averill, Petra

Camryn for a girl is a GP spelling I've had forever. I like Cameron on a boy (but wouldn't use it due to it's meaning), so I have no idea why I like Camryn. But it does the trick.
Zoe to Zoie
Cora to Kora
Megan to Meghan
Mia to Miya (Miya is a legit Japanese name, but it does look kry8tiv and it would be said as Maya)
Mae to Mai (I know Mai is said like my, but I grew up thinking it was said May thanks to my favorite cartoon)
Caia to Kaia
Sailor to Saylor (I had a friend named that in fifth grade and it stuck)
Adeline to Adalyn
Gianna to Jianna
Jocelyn to Josslyn
Leo to Lio
Ian to Aeon
Jason to Jayson
Nick to Nik

Carolyn: I like this much better than Caroline. Probably because of House of Dark Shadows.
Alyx: Far too tryndee, but much more modern than just Alex.
Jakob: I like this because it feels like a real name, not just a long form of Jake. I know it doesn't make sense. I'm okay with that.
Alyss: Yeah, I don't even know. I love Alice but Alyss is just awesome.Teen writer, pianist, sci-fi geek, cat-owner and name enthusiast.
