Whats your opinion on names like Emmaleigh, Ayvah, Airynn, Maddisynn, Leigha.
Are they trendy? Cute? Confusing?
If you want to add more please do!

Edit:Oh and for the record my two girls now are Kiara (rhymes with tiara) and Leah. The one I'm expecting will be Myla. Pretty simple I think but even those have been butchered at doctors and stuff.

 Rian (Ryan) for a girl

Keagan (Keegan) for a girl as well.

If we have another girl her name will be Jaymes (James)

My personal opinion - I hate that. It just confuses people and the child will have to deal with it their entire lives. Just spell it the right way. :)

 Oh and I have to say I like all but the Ayvah...but maybe that's just because I don't like Eva/Ava to begin with. I LOVE slightly more common names that are spelled different.....just not too different....

None of the above...imo when I see names like that I think the parents can't spell.

Rilie for a girl as well.
I wanted to spell our daughters name Emaleigh, but dh wants it simple, so we're sticking with the original spelling.

Just out of curiosity....which way are you considering "right" the common English spelling? =)

I forgot that, I have a friend whose daughter is Ryleigh, to me that isnt as confusing as something like Ayvah.

If they have a point I think they are ok... Like mixing two names after two grandmothers, a French vs English spelling etc... But I think things like Ayvah are just confusing and sometimes weird looking.... That being said spelled my dd's name Kierstin instead of Kirsten. I did that though because I hate when people mispronounce it curse-ten. Hoping it would help having the kier- like pier.....
