  • Nope, not at all. I love semi-common names with uncommon spellings. My DD's name is Alyson. Don't worry about what other people say, it's beautiful!

  • if not dumb for you then not dumb
    no matter what you named your daughter or how you spelled it, she will give you greif over it when she is 14

  • I personally wouldn't spell it that way but it isn't "dumb". Feel confident in what you like. :)

  • My rule of thumb is that if it reads as how its pronounced your good to go.

  • hey, my parents named me Katrin
    so i know what 14 yr olds say to their parents
    if there was sound recording on here
    1 in 20 people=at best= would pronounce it correctly
    and when someone actually says my name right, i am surprised

  • No I don't think it's dumb! I like when I am able to know the name but it's spelled different, it's being unique in your own way, not in a "weird way" LOL!

  • I wouldn't say it's dumb. But you probably should prepare yourself for a lifetime of correcting people's spelling :)
