Peridot should the spelling be changed?

[name]Love[/name] [name]Peridot[/name] spelled with a t but pronounced “pear-ee-doe”, but with the nn [name]Dottie[/name]. :smiley:

Beautiful name…I would not change the spelling. It would wreck the integrity of the name. Most people will pronounce it correctly. Might have to correct people a few times…but not enough for it to be a concern.

Oh well I guess I’m ignorant then because I’ve been pronouncing it as Peh-ree-dot! The name caught my eye a few weeks back and I did do some research and I’ve found a lot of conflicting information that argues both are the correct pronunciations so maybe both are legitimate and it just depends which you prefer?!

I personally don’t like the ‘doe’ ending and prefer the solid ‘dot’ at the end and with the nickname [name]Dot[/name]/[name]Dottie[/name] too.

I don’t think the spelling should be changed since most people know how to pronounce peridot.

I really love it as a name. [name]How[/name] pretty.
