Quoting linsα:" The Lyndsy spelling or Lindsay? I'm changing it to Lindsay because its the most common, it will ease ... [snip!] ... an a" and people will get it. I don't have to say "Lindsay with a Y and no e or a" and people look at me like "what?". :lol:"


I like the Lyndsy spelling. I'm sure there's plenty of other girls out there with their name spelled that way.

There is.
I think I've come up with at least 42 spellings that make sense phonetically that I can see people using. Like Lyn-z, Linseigh, Lynzee, etc. There really is a million was to spell it lol.

All of the above. But it's worse when it's a misspelled boy's name put on a girl to make it "feminine." :lol: It's also bad when people make up a name or use a made up name without researching it and then claim it has this origin and meaning when it doesn't.

Yes. It means "son of Kenneth.'' I've met a boy named Mackenzie. It's masculine by meaning and use. Much like almost all -son names are masculine names.

Depends on the name, really. I'd rather be a Madison than a Madyssyn, but an Elowyn before an Emerson. But overall, I hate the trend of putting boy names on girls. At this rate, there won't be any boy names left!

I really don't like either and I know it's so ironic and hypocritical haha. But Elliot was a special case, I swear. Nothing else suited her at all (she was almost a Claire, Grace, or Anna)...anyways yeah I won't be using anymore male names on females or unisex names for my kids :)

I agree, I hate misspelled boy names on girls. My daughter has a boy name b/c I couldnt use the name I love but I spelled it right. This girl I know gave both daughters boy names with horrible long spellings
