Alternate spelling generator and more!

I was looking through a site and found a told that told me to “Be [name_u]Unique[/name_u] and stop following tradition” and to put a common name into the box to see the alternate spellings. O_O http://www.bestlittlebaby.com/alternate-name-spelling.aspx

Most of these wouldn’t even sort of be pronounced the same

Here’s what happened with my baby names:

[name_m]Damien[/name_m] [name_m]Quillon[/name_m] Samwise – [name_u]Damyan[/name_u] Quyllon Saymwyse/Saimwyse
[name_m]Alexander[/name_m] [name_m]Dante[/name_m] [name_m]Griffin[/name_m] – Aylexaynder Daynte Gryffyn/Ailexainder Dainte Gryffyn/Alixandir Danti Gryffyn
Voltaire [name_u]Loki[/name_u] [name_u]Constantine[/name_u] – Voltaiire/Voltayire Loci/Loky Constayntyne

[name_f]Persephone[/name_f] [name_f]Elysia[/name_f] [name_f]Willow[/name_f] – Pirsiphoni Elysiai/Elysiay Wyllow – O_O Those first 2 aren’t even remotely the same.
[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Zephyrine[/name_f] [name_f]Saga[/name_f] – [name_f]Amilia[/name_f]/Amelya Ziphyrini/Zephyryne Siga
[name_f]Sylvana[/name_f] Lorian [name_f]Sophia[/name_f] – [name_f]Silvana[/name_f] Loriin Sophya – They spelled [name_f]Sylvana[/name_f] right for me :stuck_out_tongue:

My own name (husband and room mate) and names from my book:

[name_u]Angel[/name_u] [name_f]Starr[/name_f] – Aingel Stairr/Ayngel Stayrr/ [name_f]Angil[/name_f] [name_f]Starr[/name_f] – They spelled Stair wrong :stuck_out_tongue:
[name_u]Cody[/name_u] [name_u]Tyler[/name_u] – [name_m]Codi[/name_m] [name_m]Tiler[/name_m] - my husband tiles floors now
[name_m]William[/name_m] [name_m]Allen[/name_m] – Wyllyem Aillen/Ayllen

[name_f]Marietta[/name_f] – Mariitta
Quella – [name_f]Quilla[/name_f] – not pronounced the same here
[name_m]Severin[/name_m] – Sivirin – also not pronounced the same
[name_u]Alexis[/name_u] – Ailexis/Aylexys

With the plainest names I could think of:

[name_m]Ted[/name_m] – Tid – not pronounced the sam
[name_m]Will[/name_m] – Wyll
[name_m]Rick[/name_m] – Ricc
[name_f]Jill[/name_f] – [name_f]Jyll[/name_f]
[name_f]Beth[/name_f] – Bith

My roommate wanted me to try [name_f]Alayne[/name_f]…this is what happened:

Ailaiyne
Aylayyne

WHAT?!

There was also the baby name generator Baby Name Generator - Girl Names, Boy Names, and Unisex Names | Best Little Baby :
Input mother and father and got these supposedly Greek names:

[name_f]Caddie[/name_f]
Kalonice
[name_f]Corinda[/name_f]
[name_f]Candi[/name_f]
[name_f]Claretta[/name_f]
Achlys – which is the Greek spirit of the death mist
Claral

[name_f]Bronte[/name_f]
[name_m]Anderson[/name_m]
[name_m]Jorgan[/name_m]
Orien
Denniston
[name_m]Philipson[/name_m]
[name_f]Nikola[/name_f]
[name_u]Corban[/name_u]
Melanchton
[name_m]Dionysius[/name_m] – which is spelled wrong (on nameberry as well)

[name_m]Damien[/name_m] [name_m]Jaymes[/name_m]

And my celebrity baby name is Celebrity Baby Name Generator

Bummerish Diapensiaceous (boy)
&
Coaggregation Amelias (girl)

You try. :slight_smile:

Haha! My turn:

Aphro.dite [name_u]Marian[/name_u] Ill.yria - Ayphrdoite [name_f]Maryan[/name_f] Yllyrya (lots of y’s)
[name_f]Callisto[/name_f] Freyja Undomiel - [name_f]Kallisto[/name_f]/Callysto Freija Undomill/Undomyel
Tinuviel [name_f]Circe[/name_f] [name_f]Ingrid[/name_f] - Tinuviil/Tynuvyel Cyrce/Sirce Yngryd

[name_m]Galileo[/name_m] [name_m]Hector[/name_m] Earendil - Gaylileo/Galyleo Hictor Eairendil/Earendyl

Theoden [name_m]Sigurd[/name_m] [name_m]Wayland[/name_m] - Thiodin Sygurd Waylland

I’ll play with the others later. I think Aylayyne is the best name ever. And Achlys… well, I know it’s real but it’s just awful.

I’ve been into [name_f]Elspeth[/name_f] lately (due to constant exposure to it on the forum) and I got: ilspith, ellspeth
[name_f]Seraphina[/name_f] - siraphina, seraphyna
Esmee - “no alternate spellings for Esmee” came up

[name_m]Vaughn[/name_m] - vawghn

I hit the jackpot with [name_m]Bartlett[/name_m] - bairtlett, bayrtlett, bartlitt, bartllett

My celebrity baby name is:
espontoon duressor

I put in my top 5 for each gender.

[name_m]Samuel[/name_m] - Saimuel, Saymuel, [name_m]Samuil[/name_m], [name_m]Samuell[/name_m]
[name_m]Edward[/name_m] - Edwaird, Edwayrd, Idward

[name_f]Anne[/name_f] - Ainne, Aynne
[name_f]Lydia[/name_f] - [name_f]Lidia[/name_f], Lydya

Whoever created this generator (and whoever actually spells their children’s names this way) obviously didn’t learn phonetics in primary school. I am filled with chagrin.

they couldn’t figure out how to add superflous Ys to Esmee I guess! (although [name_f]Esmay[/name_f] seems rather obvious…)

Judging by the spellings of real-life babies in certain areas that are posted here on Nameberry, I think many people may be overusing these sites. My eyes are bleeding from reading them. :slight_smile:

My celebrity baby name was ‘disgustingnesses curriing’…

I don’t even…?

[name_m]Jack[/name_m]:jacc, jakk

Oh dear.

My celebrity children would be Iliopelvic Denarius and Dentistic Erythrogen. [name_f]Lovely[/name_f]…

Otherwise, using my top 5, I got:

[name_f]Cosima[/name_f]: Kosima/Cosyma
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]: [name_f]Ophilia[/name_f]/[name_f]Ophelya[/name_f]/Ophellia
[name_f]Alice[/name_f]: Ailice/Aylice/[name_f]Alise[/name_f]/[name_f]Alyce[/name_f]/[name_f]Allice[/name_f]
[name_f]Amelie[/name_f]: Aimelie/Aymelie/Amelye/Amellie
[name_f]Lucie[/name_f]: Lusie/Lucye

[name_m]Victor[/name_m]: [name_m]Viktor[/name_m]/Vyctor
[name_m]Nicolas[/name_m]: [name_m]Nikolas[/name_m]/Nycolas/Nicollas
[name_m]Charles[/name_m]: Chairles/Chayrles/Kharles/Charlles
[name_m]Alistair[/name_m]: Alystayr/Allistair
[name_m]Arthur[/name_m]: none

They don’t have anything for [name_m]Theodore[/name_m] as well (I’m thankful for that, but I find it kind of surprising.)

I also checked out the [name_m]French[/name_m] middles. [name_f]Caressa[/name_f], [name_f]Elouise[/name_f], [name_f]Florida[/name_f] and [name_u]Devin[/name_u] are not [name_m]French[/name_m] girl names. Same goes for [name_u]Jaye[/name_u], [name_m]Dickie[/name_m], Piperel and [name_f]Bari[/name_f] for boys…

They came up with Hainnaih Caitherine, Haynnayh Caytherine, [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] and [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] Catheryne for me. I don’t know why the first two have those Is and Ys in them as my name has no I or Y sounds. [name_f]Hannah[/name_f] [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] is completely normal, they just changed the C to a K and I don’t even think Catheryne’s too weird either. An odd mix I think.

Names from my signature:
[name_f]Amabel[/name_f] - Aimaibel/Aymaybel/Amabil/Amabell
[name_f]Bryony[/name_f] - Brioni/Breighoneigh(???!!!)/Breeonee/Brieonie/Bryoni/Bryoney/[name_f]Bryonie[/name_f]

[name_f]Charis[/name_f] - Kharis/Charys
[name_f]Clara[/name_f] - [name_f]Klara[/name_f]/Cllara (since when was Cll- a legitimate combination of letters?)
[name_f]Flora[/name_f] - Fllora (or Fll- for that natter…)
[name_f]Georgiana[/name_f] - Giorgiana/[name_f]Georgyana[/name_f]
[name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] - [name_f]Ophilia[/name_f]/[name_f]Ophelya[/name_f]/Ophellia
[name_f]Rosamund[/name_f] - nothing!
[name_f]Sylvie[/name_f] - [name_f]Silvie[/name_f]/Sylvye/Syllvie
[name_f]Tabitha[/name_f] - [name_f]Tabytha[/name_f]

[name_m]Barnaby[/name_m] - Barnabi/Barnabeigh/[name_m]Barnabee[/name_m]/Barnabie
[name_u]Darcy[/name_u] - [name_f]Darci[/name_f]/Darceigh/[name_f]Darcee[/name_f]/[name_f]Darcie[/name_f]/[name_m]Darsy[/name_m] (but no [name_u]Darcey[/name_u]?)
[name_u]Elliot[/name_u] - Illiot (what?)/[name_f]Ellyot[/name_f]/[name_u]Eliot[/name_u]
[name_m]Felix[/name_m] - Filix/[name_m]Felyx[/name_m]/Fellix
[name_m]Frederick[/name_m] - Fredericc (cc?)/Frederikk/Fridirick/Frederyck
[name_m]Henry[/name_m] - [name_m]Henri[/name_m]/Henreigh/Henree/Henrie/Hinry
[name_u]Rowan[/name_u] - nada!
[name_m]Rupert[/name_m] - Rupirt
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] - and zilch!
[name_u]Tristan[/name_u] - [name_u]Trystan[/name_u]

The majority of these I would not pronounce anything like they’re supposed to be. They’ve also missed off some rather obvious legitimate spellings.

[name_f]Dagmar[/name_f] - Digmar
[name_f]Cleopatra[/name_f] - Clleopatra/Cliopatra
[name_u]Artemis[/name_u] - Ayrtemis/Airtimis/Artemys
[name_f]Signe[/name_f] - Sygne - The first part reminds of the danish word for sick.
Fie - Fye
