Why? I'm just curious. I saw a little girl tonight with a name tag on that said, "De'yana." Why the apostrophe?

Mine does, it's to make sure they say the end part of it right. I don't spell it like that anymore though. :P

Sometimes it changes how you say the word. My dd has a hyphen Lori-Anne. So you say them separately. Her name is not Loraine, see.

My girls were named after family, I put the apostrophes in it to "separate" the names. Their names are De'Avia (she was named after her Aunt Dee and grandpa LeeAvia). I also have Mar'Cayla An'Joel (she was named after her grandma Margaret and her Great Aunt Cay, her middle name is from her great Aunts Julie Ann and Rebecca Jo, my other daughter wanted to call her Angel, so we compromised.) their grandparents are deceased and so is their Great Aunt Rebecca Jo.

my name is kosha' like tosha but a k and the reason its there is so the O is pronounced like awe instead of O, cause the original spelling of my name is Kasha which would make a lot of sence just saying lol

I don't understand. I always thought an apostrophe replaces a missing letter. It doesn't separate words. A hyphen does that?

 My little step-cousin has a name like that. Her name is Shan'Elle. Don't ask me why her BM named her like that. I like it though. Its different, and unique.
