    Spelling issues is driving me crazy!

    Hi there.

    My partner and I can not settle on our future daughters name as we can't choose the spelling. We are planners and like to plan things way ahead of time.

    Our dilemma is between two spellings. They are Lucie-Mae and Lucy-Mae. We both prefer one or the other. We also tend to like one spelling more than the other on different days for example one day I will prefer Lucie-Mae and the next I will prefer Lucy-Mae.

    So our questions are these...

    Which spellings do you like best when the whole name is written out? Either Lucie-Mae Rose or Lucy-Mae Rose?

    Which spelling would you choose if you were naming your own daughter Lucie/Lucy?

    Thanks for any feedback.

    Lucy-Mae! It looks best to me - tidy, simple and sweet. I also like how the y spelling means that one of her names doesnt end in e

    Lucy-Mae is the one I prefer. I think it looks a lot tidier - sweet and simple.

    Just a quick note to say,
    I'm always up for a chat, so feel free to say 'Hey'!

    Thank you all for replying.

    Lucy-Mae is the clear winner so far.

    Any more opinions?

    Lucy-Mae Rose. In general I like Lucie and -ie ending names, but I think in the double barrel with Mae and with middle Rose Lucy ends up more visually appealing.

    Lucy-Mae is gorgeous however you spell it, but I think you need to be prepared that these spelling issues will persist throughout her life. You are likely to see her name rendered boths way or as Lucy-May, Lucy-mae, or without the hyphen, etc. Probably worth pondering whether this is something you can live with.
