    Ofelia or Ophelia???

    We both really like this name. We can't deice which spelling we like the most though.

    I've always loved Ophelia with this spelling, but Ofelia looks better with our surname. Which one is your favorite?

    Ophelia Athanasiadis ?

    or

    Ofelia Athanasiadis ?

    Ofelia does look better with your surname. The only thing that would affect my choice of spelling here would be pronunciation. Are you pronouncing it more like oh-FEE-lee-uh or oh-FAY-lee-uh? I know I would be more inclined to pronounce Ofelia as oh-FAY-lee-uh and Ophelia as oh-FEE-lee-uh.

    I love both, and agree with PP. If you have a preference on pronunciation, I would go with that one. I do think that the Ofelia pronunciation is easier pronounced in more languages if the universal aspect appeals to you, while Ophelia looks a little more regal on paper.

    I prefer Ofelia with your surname.

    I prefer Ophelia, Ofelia somehow strikes me as misspelled. Also I don't think Ophelia looks that bad with your surname :-)

    Definitely Ophelia :-) Ofelia looks like a more creative spelling (even though it isn't) :/
