Which spelling do you like better: Presli or Presly?

I LOVE the name Presley for if we ever have a girl someday but I have to have a six letter name (both my boys names have 6 letters and I want to keep the trend going) So i was wondering which way looks better. I am not a fan of crazy spellings, but I dont think either of these is too over the top.

  • I think Presli looks better than Presly. Presly looks like a typo, where as Presli it is obvious that it is meant to be spelled that way. Make sense? lol

  • Presli looks nicer bc if you go with Presly some people might just throw in that e anyway bc it looks like you forgot the e.


    Presli...yeah I like it ;)

  • im sorry, im not trying to be rude - but i think presly is one of the most horrible names i have ever heard for a girl. i think its ridiculous for a boy, but for a girl? i mean.. really.. i would be SO pissed off if my mother named me presly. that girl is gonna get made fun of so bad..

  • I am typically a fan of the 'y' .. (ex: Madyson instead of Madison), but I actually like Presli spelled with an 'i'.

    It is actually becoming quite popular of a name and I think it's cute. In fact one of my friends has a 4 yr old named Presley and it sounds super cute! The OP didn't ask if anyone liked it, she asked what we thought was a better spelling.

  • I don't care for either spelling, sorry!

    I think people WILL spell it Presley her whole life and it will be annoying to her to have to correct them constantly.
