I can understand when it still makes sense phonetically, like Nicholas being spelled Nickolas. But when it completely changes the pronunciation of the name or makes it difficult to recognize I think they are taking too far. These children have to live with the name and people constantly mispronouncing their name or misspelling it for the rest of their life because of parents trying to be "different". In some cases, it effects the kids professionally when they become adults. It makes them look like they came from undereducated families because of the misspelling of their name.
As someone who has a difficult last name(to spell and say) I can't see purposely doing that to a child. Last names we have to live with, but first names that we get to choose.. we should choose something that will benefit the child, not hinder them so they are bullied later for it.

I hear you and how about .......better yet when the parent corrects you on mispronouncing the name and they pronounceit with syllables or sounds of letters Not even in the name.
