  • Molly.. trust me. I named my oldest daughter Hayleigh and it's annoying that I can never find tings like cute barrettes, pencils, toothbrushes etc.. with the correct spelling of her name on them... she's 9 now and gets frustrated too. I have 4 other daughters and since Hayleigh I have always spelled them traditional... Emma, Jillian, Kayla and Reese

  • as a teacher i would beg with you to pick molly. spelling it molly is easier to teach letters in her name instead of throwing in a silent e at the end, is easier to do in sign language, the kids won't mess it up when they give her the yearly valentines day cards, there is an american girl named molly, more personalized things spelled that way... the list goes on and on.

    my name is emily and one of my students has the same name but spells it emmaleigh. we want to switch spellings because she would like to be "normal emily" but i like funky. so, as an eccentric i would say do whatever you want. but as a teacher i would say, don't rock the boat.
