Sooo his dad LOVES the name Jace. He's set on it.

I like the name but am NOT a fan of Jenelle Evans from teen mom so I want to change the spelling a bit so people don't think we got it from her. Because really, we didn't, boyfriend doesn't even watch teen mom and it was his idea. I had to make him google her to see why I wasn't crazy about it in the first place. LOL

It will technically be his middle name, his first name will be Michael, but we are planning to call him by his middle name because

1) His dad goes by his middle name

and

2) He is being named Michael after his grandfather, my uncle, a long time good friend of mine, and his dad's first name is Michael. That is too many Mikes for one family!

Thanks everyone for your input :)

Lol, I'd just spell it the normal way. I don't think changing the spelling is going to change anyone who actually watches that show from associating the name with it. And the majority of people who don't watch it won't think of it.
Besides, he'll have to live with the spelling if his name for a lifetime, the small percentage of people influenced by that show will have moved on and forgotten all about it in a few years.

I agree spelling isn't going to change anything.  When the teacher or you yell Jace do you really think anyone thinks about the spelling?

 BF has had no problems being called by his middle name in school and at work his whole life so I dont really see it being an issue.

Its mostly for my uncle, he has always been there for me 100% and was SO excited when I told him our plan for the baby's name that he actually teared up. And he's a big tough guy that doesn't cry :)

Yes. He does. Haha. He's Willie's brother.... And seems like most people I know have a little crush on him. Lol. I've only watched the show once. But everyone else I know loves the show.

When I signed my son up for school, they had a line asking what he likes to be called or name he goes by. Maybe her kid will get that same privilege.
