A friend has named her baby Nimah (not yet registered birth) but definitely means for it to be pronounced "NEEVE", as in Niamh, and I think she's just got the spelling wrong.
I KNOW that you can spell your baby's name how the heck you like and put your own twist on it, but Nimah is already a girl's name, with a completely different pronunciation (pronounced "NEEMA", as it looks) so I don't know if she'll be upset if nobody dares say anything then gets it registered, or if she'll be more upset that her 'twist' on the spelling is being questioned..??

I would tell my friend. I mean, if the situation was the other way around and I was the one about to misspell/mispronounce my child's name, I would want someone to say something to me so I could give it a second thought.
