    Help me choose a spelling!

    I absolutely love the name Linette and have for a while but I really really dislike name's with "y"'s in them, especially in the middle of a name so I couldn't stomach using Lynette. I like the name with an "i" instead, but Linette looks incomplete, while Linnette looks too over done to me. Right now I'm leaning towards Linnette, but I would love your opinions on this! Thanks

    I like Linette! I used to think it looked strange, but one day I just looked at it and said, "It doesn't look strange at all!" I'd say Linnette's "over-done" outweighs Linette's "incomplete" and stick with Linette.

    Well, a linnet is a type of bird, and the spelling is pretty cute (please vote!)

    I think Linette looks fine! I would say that Linet would be incomplete and Linnette is definitely overdone. And I agree, I hate how it's spelled with the y!!!
    Not so done having children after all. We're not ready for TTC quite yet but when we do get pregnant,the husband handed sole naming rights over to his name obsessed wife!

    I like either spelling. I think Linnette is very pretty, not "overdone".
