    Alternate spelling generator and more!

    I was looking through a site and found a told that told me to "Be Unique and stop following tradition" and to put a common name into the box to see the alternate spellings. O_O http://www.bestlittlebaby.com/altern...-spelling.aspx

    Most of these wouldn't even sort of be pronounced the same

    Here's what happened with my baby names:

    Damien Quillon Samwise -- Damyan Quyllon Saymwyse/Saimwyse
    Alexander Dante Griffin -- Aylexaynder Daynte Gryffyn/Ailexainder Dainte Gryffyn/Alixandir Danti Gryffyn
    Voltaire Loki Constantine -- Voltaiire/Voltayire Loci/Loky Constayntyne

    Persephone Elysia Willow -- Pirsiphoni Elysiai/Elysiay Wyllow -- O_O Those first 2 aren't even remotely the same.
    Amelia Zephyrine Saga -- Amilia/Amelya Ziphyrini/Zephyryne Siga
    Sylvana Lorian Sophia -- Silvana Loriin Sophya -- They spelled Sylvana right for me :P

    My own name (husband and room mate) and names from my book:

    Angel Starr -- Aingel Stairr/Ayngel Stayrr/ Angil Starr -- They spelled Stair wrong :P
    Cody Tyler -- Codi Tiler - my husband tiles floors now
    William Allen -- Wyllyem Aillen/Ayllen

    Marietta -- Mariitta
    Quella -- Quilla -- not pronounced the same here
    Severin -- Sivirin -- also not pronounced the same
    Alexis -- Ailexis/Aylexys

    With the plainest names I could think of:

    Ted -- Tid -- not pronounced the sam
    Will -- Wyll
    Rick -- Ricc
    Jill -- Jyll
    Beth -- Bith

    My roommate wanted me to try Alayne...this is what happened:

    Ailaiyne
    Aylayyne

    WHAT?!

    There was also the baby name generator http://www.bestlittlebaby.com/baby-name-generator.aspx :
    Input mother and father and got these supposedly Greek names:

    Caddie
    Kalonice
    Corinda

    Achlys -- which is the Greek spirit of the death mist
    Claral

    Anderson
    Jorgan
    Orien
    Denniston
    Philipson
    Nikola
    Corban
    Melanchton
    Dionysius -- which is spelled wrong (on nameberry as well)

    And this middle name generator http://www.bestlittlebaby.com/baby-m...generator.aspx :
    Using Persephone and Damien (and supposedly Greek suggestions then English):

    Greek:
    Persephone Kandy
    Persephone Acazia

    Persephone Mellie

    Greek:

    Haha! My turn:

    Aphro.dite Marian Ill.yria - Ayphrdoite Maryan Yllyrya (lots of y's)
    Callisto Freyja Undomiel - Kallisto/Callysto Freija Undomill/Undomyel
    Tinuviel Circe Ingrid - Tinuviil/Tynuvyel Cyrce/Sirce Yngryd

    Galileo Hector Earendil - Gaylileo/Galyleo Hictor Eairendil/Earendyl
    Orpheus Ljosalf Elessar - Orphius Ljosalf (no alternative) Illisar/Elessayr
    Theoden Sigurd Wayland - Thiodin Sygurd Waylland

    I'll play with the others later. I think Aylayyne is the best name ever. And Achlys... well, I know it's real but it's just awful.

    I put in my top 5 for each gender.

    Samuel - Saimuel, Saymuel, Samuil, Samuell
    Edward - Edwaird, Edwayrd, Idward
    George - none (thank the heavens)
    Silas - Sylas, Sillas
    Jasper - Jaisper, Jaysper, Jaspir

    Helen - Hilin, Hellen
    Cora - Kora
    Jane - Jaine, Jayne
    Anne - Ainne, Aynne
    Lydia - Lidia, Lydya

    Whoever created this generator (and whoever actually spells their children's names this way) obviously didn't learn phonetics in primary school. I am filled with chagrin.

    they couldn't figure out how to add superflous Ys to Esmee I guess! (although Esmay seems rather obvious...)
