Hi
I like the name Tabitha Jasmine but prefer the spelling Tabitha Jasmyn. Am I crazy? Honest opinions please....

Casmama Sat 20-Jul-13 21:20:20

Poncy, sorry

it's beautiful spelt properly...why tinker with it?

PuggyMum Sat 20-Jul-13 21:30:49

I'm not a fan of tinkering with spellings.

But Jasmine is lovely.

I don't mind it, I love the name but Jasmine is always read as Jas mine in my head. I like it without the e so Jasmin or Jasmyn is fine by me.
Middle name anyway so do what you want.
Adore Tabitha btw

Agree with everyone else.

Just leave the spelling as it is. Tabitha Jasmine is lovely.

Leave the spelling as Jasmine.

Sorry, but any future teacher will think that she has thick or dyslexic parents, or ones that are trying too hard to be different.

Like some of the others I am not a fan of tinkering with spellings either. Besides, you will constantly have to correct other people's spelling of the name.

Poncy in my opinion. Just looks naff spelt like that.

Don't mess with the spellings of names - what's the point?

PreciousPuddleduck Sat 20-Jul-13 21:49:32

Jasmine is much nicer

ExcuseTypos Sat 20-Jul-13 21:53:24

Bun I think that's rather harsh. I work n a school and the teachers I work with wouldn't be so judgemental.

Sorry, I don't think it is poncy spelling, quite the opposite! I would think chavvy.

vix206 Sat 20-Jul-13 21:55:16

I don't find it poncy but I don't like made up spellings and think Jasmine is a beautiful name as it is. smile

Not poncy - just a bit silly imho.

Smartiepants79 Sat 20-Jul-13 21:56:01

Silly spelling.

lemontwist Sat 20-Jul-13 21:56:16

Awful, sorry. The name is fine but I really dislike mis-spelt names. Also poor child would be constantly correcting people.

scottishmummy Sat 20-Jul-13 21:56:22

Why would you purposefully spell a name wrong
It's not quirky,it's not individual

BOF Sat 20-Jul-13 21:56:23

It's not poncey, it's just wrong.

ceramicunicorn Sat 20-Jul-13 21:57:55

Not poncy, chavvy. Lovely name when spelt correctly.

Oldandcobwebby Sat 20-Jul-13 22:09:01

Please don't spell your daughter's name incorrectly. Please. Stop it. Stop it now.

lucybrad Sat 20-Jul-13 22:42:43

and if we used Jayne - this would be the same thing then?

BOF Sat 20-Jul-13 22:45:19

No, because Jayne is an acceptable spelling.

scottishmummy Sat 20-Jul-13 22:45:40

What do you want honest opinion or argument with posters
Jayne is a minority but recognised spelling of Jane, expect still need to spell it
Jasmyn,it's a lifetime of no m-y-m.just cause you like different spellings
