Thread: Esme Spelling?
September 6th, 2013 04:57 AM #1
So I like the name Esme and I want to know which spelling to use ie the one that will be most widely accepted.
Which spelling of Esme do you prefer?
#1 Esmé is the original French male form of the name that is being used for females in America and is thus now seen as unisex.
#2 Esmée is the original female form of the name. Still popular in Europe for the females, but the unisex form is typically found in America.
#3 Esme - without the accent
#4 Esmee - without the accent
#5 Esmae - phonetic spelling
#6 Esmay - phonetic spelling
I do not live in Europe. (I live in the US)

My favorite is Esme and then Esmée ."And so, being young and dipt in folly. I fell in love with melancholy,."- Edgar Allan Poe
September 6th, 2013 05:26 AM #7i do not ignore the Rich Text toolbar provided me. i bold, italicize, enlarge, underline and CAPITALIZE for emphasis, individuality, and to capture attention among the endless Arial Standard Size Font that everyone else uses.
i am not screaming nor will i cosset you. i do this to highlight the most important aspect of my thoughts so they are not lost again in the never ending sea of tiny, black, tempered letters that make up forums everywhere.
~*~ i encourage you to do the same ~*~

orphanhanyou feedback and commentary like that is exactly why I created this thread.
Ideally I want to be a name purist, but realistically I don't want to create unnecessary problems, so I am asking to see which spelling will be best accepted.
