    How many ways can people rearrange the same 6 letters!?

    I have a thing about all the names that are simply differing combinations of E,L,A,I,Y,(H). There are SOOO many of them that they start to feel like white noise to me.

    It begins to feel like a game! How many ways can you rearrange 6 letters? Really it's the first 5 letters that are the biggest offenders. Since H is usually silent it's just thrown in for texture apparently.

    And this isn't even all of them! This list doesn't include names given to fewer than 10 kids or those with letters like G and J thrown in (there's another 50 versions at least!)

    What's wrong with people?
    I understand that Lily is a pretty name. But I wouldn't use anything that came close to any of these.

    Most of those are just unique spellings. It seems many parents love Lila, Lily, Lilian, Elena, Alena, Elle, Ellie, Hailey, Ilona, Alana... just chose to write them differently. OK, I might admit 10 names are bit much, but they are not the only ones parents like.

    I must admit I like many of those names, just I have other favorites, more unusual ones, and probably won't use any of those. It's nothing wrong being drawn to popular names or names that sounds similar. Only problem would be confusion, but that's small problem.

    Oh, I forgot mention some names.

    Just wanted to add that all above is true if many parents pronounce these names same. Maybe they pronounce some of these names differently.

    I have been wondering why I have such a visceral reaction whenever I hear a name ending in the -aya sound, or even just -ya. I think this is it! Second only to the -ahna sound. Sooo many variations.
