Prefer the spelling Amy. Aimee always looks to me like it should be pronounced in the French way 'Am-ay'. Makes me think of my great Aunt rather than Eastenders! One of those old-fashioned names like Emily which are popular.
You are entitled not to like it (I am not a massive fan myself) but this is not a ridiculous spelling. There are many names used in the UK based on foreign spellings. Ridiculous spellings are made-up spellings. IMHO anyway.
If I find the spelling ridiculous and you don't, to me that's a difference of opinion. Nobody is right or wrong here. I offered my thoughts. I'm not here to argue with people and certainly wouldn't want to offend anyone.
lmao this is my name, funny to here peoples opinions. I personally think the name is nice as long as you dont mind having to spell out the name for EVERYTHING, there are so many different ways of spelling it and people always get it wrong for birthdays and christmas, so just be aware that you and your child will forever have to spell out the name. Good luck x
I don't think of eastenders. I think of the girls I knew who were Amy who are now mainly in their thirties. It's quite a nice name. I don't particularly like the spelling Aimee, mainly because whenever your daughter tells anyone her name, such as over the phone, they will write it as Amy. They just will. If you're ok with that then go for it, but be aware that she may hate having her name spelled incorrectly (on party invitations, birthday cards, etc).
