Ayden instead of Aiden, but with Jordyn, Mackynzie, Naythyn, etc, I don't understand it. Like, with Jordan and Jordyn, I'd pronounce them Jor-DAN and Jor-DIN. I think it's just our accents that change pronunciations though - similar to how er/or endings sometimes come out as 'ah' or 'eh' in an English accent.
Elowyn would annoy me too, but, doesn't the Wyn/Wen ending in the Welsh language apply to Elowen as well?eighteen and dreaming of little darlings.

I found it interesting. If it were my choice I would have spelled it Kerrigan a là Sarah Kerrigan... Starcraft anyone?
And yes, being American I can HEAR the differences in the sounds (duh, right?) and I know it my head that it (Carrigan) SHOULD be pronounced KAH, but my first instinct is KEH. Those are two completely different sounds, yes? The interchanging the Y for an E or A is a little different.. To Americans the sound change (if they pronounce it correctly) is subtle, therefore some do it for looks/whatever. I would pronounce Aiden differently than Aidyn. But not so much that anyone would really notice I think.Callista; 21; ♎☉ | animal; long-hair advocate; plannerMother to 3 guinea pigs ~ Ganon, Impa, and Din.For funsies:♂ | Link Nikolai Stanley ❂ Soren Fox Beauregard ❂ River Ashley Orion ❂ Shepherd Lugh Castor ❂ Gabriel Ivan Oak♀| Fawn Elizabeth Ruth ❂ Luna Sigrid Gaia ❂ Faye Isephina Dawn ❂ Rhian Sunflower Hella ❂ Mischa Rain Gardenia ❂ Kelsea Lily Woodland ❂ Ahna Raphaela ValleyVisit my "About Me" for my full (lazy) list
