    Spelling of Bayley for a boy?

    Which spelling of Bayley seems most suitable for a boy to you?
    I'm thinking Bayley or Bailey, but am interested to hear opinions...
    Would like to use the one that is least likely to be mistaken for a girl.

    Thanks!

    Though I am personally not a fan of the name, I would go with Bailey. It is the original spelling and looks slightly more masculine to my eyes.

    I only like the Bailey spelling and I always assume Bailey's to be boys; it's decidedly masculine to me.

    Bayley is too similar to Hayley. I'd go with Bailey. I see it as a boys name too.

    I would stick with Bailey. At first I misread Bayley as Baylor. That could have been because I know a fantastic little guy named Baylor.
