DH wants to reconsider spelling of LO's name

We are expecting a little girl in 6 days and we fell in love with the name Skylin. I went back and forth about how to spell it but finally decided on that spelling because it was easiest and since the name is already different, I didn't want to do too much with different spelling. So it's been decided for months. I have written it down a million times, and bought the letters for her wall. Just recently DH told me that he would like to consider spelling it Skylyn because "2 Y's just seems cooler." LOL! I think that it is cool but the 2 Y's close together seems a bit odd. And when I imagine her doodling it on her notebooks in school one day I see the cursive Y and a heart dotting the I (lame I know but I think of these things LOL) I admit I'm a little peeved because that was what we agreed on and now she is less than a week away and he should have brought this up sooner. But still I want to consider his feelings. But he says he loves the name regardless and I get final pick on this one.

So WWYD? Tell me your opinions mommy's!

Skylin or Skylyn?

Btw, her middle name will be Lorre` (Lor Ray) in honor of his mother, Lorraine, and my father, Rene` if that helps your opinions at all.
