Best way of spelling?

I know my little one will probably have to spell her name out to people in the future, I also do but it doesn't bother me. I just wondered what people's opinions are on the best way of spelling it.

I thought the usual way of spelling it was Casey. I know two - a boy and a girl - who both spell it this way.

Kasey or Kacey

Yes, it definitely looks more right with a C, but the only one I know spells it Kasey, so that's what automatically popped into my head.

Casey is the conventional spelling.

The name probably comes from a surname, Casey. That possibly comes from a Gaelic word meaning 'ready for war' or 'war-vigilant': Cathasach. There is no 'k' in the Gaelic alphabet, so it's better to spell the name with a C.

The famous Casey Jones spelled it 'Casey' - but his nickname (his real name was John Luther) was taken from Cayce, a town in the USA. You might want to copy that, perhaps???

The only Casey I know is spelled Casey.

I think Casey would be the best spelling.

All the others look like feminised spellings, and I don't think your DS would thank you for that.

I think of Casey Jones too - do children still sing the song?

Can I suggest Carey? Always had a wee soft spot for it!

I always assumed the name Casey was for a boy, so perhaps a different spelling would be better for a girl? I think I would prefer Kacey out of your suggested spellings. I definitely wouldn't go for Kaci because I'd worry people would pronounce it with a hard "c" i.e. Kack-ee, which is definitely not nice!

An alternative would be to name her Katrina Chloe or something and call her K.C. for short.

Sorry grin

Casey looks best, for what it's worth.

MummyPiggy87 Thu 18-Jun-15 19:20:53

Thanks, I'm aware of the American spelling Casey but I think it's more for a boy. From what I've read Kacie is a modern English version. I prefer it with K. I originally liked the name from seeing that girl Kacie on the bachelor on TV x

Ha ha @ Lucy!

What about KC kidding

Yep agree Casey is the nicer spelling. I am all about convention when it comes to names!!

MummyPiggy87 Thu 18-Jun-15 19:35:08

Casey is not on the list lol

scribblegirl Thu 18-Jun-15 19:36:23

Of your options I would choose Kasey

Cloggal Thu 18-Jun-15 19:38:36

I'd probably pick Kacey out of your list.

MummyPiggy87 Thu 18-Jun-15 19:39:22

Thank you..

Bear in mind this is a girl, spelling it Casey is for a boy, I.e Casey affleck, Ben afflecks brother.

Ponyboycurtis Thu 18-Jun-15 19:39:40

My surname Cloggal

Nospringflower Thu 18-Jun-15 19:42:38

Not really keen on any of your spellings -- all look a bit made up whereas Casey looks like a real name.

LunaMay Thu 18-Jun-15 19:45:27

My cousin spells her name Kacey.

MummyPiggy87 Thu 18-Jun-15 19:48:56

Nospringflower they arnt made up, they are real names. Name as some people spell my name Haley or Hayley.
