DH's name is Kelly...we want to name him Kellan only with a spin that includes DH's name.

If I HAD to choose, the first one.



But why don't you just spell it Kellan? The y makes it feel more girly to me, and looks weird.

For his Dad...it's actually a family name and I'd go with the "usual" spelling but then the name doesn't mean the same to us. Thanks :)

With the Y it makes it look totally girly. Kellen is a good name

Kellen.....it's the "Kell" enough of a spin?



Although, I would really encourage you to give your child their own name.



If you want to honour his father, use Kelly as the middle name.

This was exactly what i was thinking. Lyn is more of a girlish name.

Lyn makes me think feminine. I think Kellan is perfectly fine like that.

Yeah I get that but as I said, DH's name is Kelly and that's a girl's name to me so...

I have to agree with everyone else, I keep wanting to say Kelly-enn when I read it. It's a throw off.
