My husband likes the name Elena but he pronounces it Alanna. Whenever I see Elena on a page I want to pronounce it Ellena. I don't like names that are so ambiguous regarding spelling and pronunciations! The poor girl will be constantly correcting people.
A possible compromise could be Helen but I'm still holding out for Daisy.
Sorry I was a bit confusing. He says it Ah-lay-na and I keep telling him that means the name starts with an A not an E. I think the whole thing is just too confusing and he should give up on it already.
That said, we've only just found out our baby is a girl and so spent the weekend "discussing" it.
