If you gave your child a unique name or a ewnik spelling...

Do you now regret it, or are you still happy with it?

  • My children have not overly used (at least in the US) names. And, no I don't regret them. Of course, they are spelled the traditional way.

  • Ugh. They're not unique and everyone laughs at their " uniqueness" fail

  • To some, my daughter has a unique name. It isn't unique at all, just not common in the US. AND the America pronunciation of her name is different than the country it comes from.

  • My DD will never find anything personalized, but I can't imagine her with any other name. At least I didn't spell her name in the Gaelic form, which is what i was originally going to do

  • Oh, and no, I do not regret it. Like MChildressDem, my daughter will have to have personalized things special ordered.

  • My youngest has a common name with the usual spelling. My oldest has a...well, I'm not sure how common it is, but it's not unique, either. It does have a unique spelling, but it's replacing a C with a K. Actually, that's not really so much unique as it is that it's just spelled the German way. I don't regret spelling it that way, but I do get annoyed when people ask me "Did you mean to say C instead of K?" when I spell it for them. No, if I meant to say C, I would have said C. They're not letters that are easily confused.
