I’ve heard the argument that some created spellings are just too yoonique. And usually I can see why.
But some names morph and eventually are accepted. What changes? [name_m]Phineas[/name_m] to [name_m]Finneas[/name_m], as I saw the other day. More are there I’m sure, I’m just blanking.
[name_f]My[/name_f] girls both have middle names that have established “y” spellings—[name_f]Elyse[/name_f] and [name_f]Carys[/name_f]. Though I’m not set on that being a have-to (we’re currently in great like with [name_f]Hadassah[/name_f] [name_u]Love[/name_u]) , two girl names I like ([name_f]Grace[/name_f] and [name_u]Shiloh[/name_u]) seem they would match better or feel more “fresh” with a “y” included: [name_f]Grayce[/name_f] and [name_m]Shyloh[/name_m]. I also like Graycen.
It’s likely we’ll not use these names or at least, spelled this way, if we have another girl. But, any ideas on what makes alternative spellings suddenly “work?”
