Alasdair + Variants
This is not a topic asking which variant you like best, instead the one you think is the most practical. Think of factors like spelling, pronunciation, familiarity to help make your decision.
Which variant is the most practical? And please explain your reasons.

I think it really has to do with how you pronounce it. If you say the names as al-iss-tare then Alistair would be my pick, but if it's said as al-uh-ster then Alister would probably be best.
Personally, I say Alasdair differently from Alister (the first pronunciation for Alasdair then the second for Alister). Though I do say Alistair the same as Alister.just a confused teenberry.
