Is this a terrible spelling? I just think it makes more sense...

It's wrong, whether it makes sense or not is immaterial. Lots of words in the English language have illogical spellings.

It may make more sense, but it is not the standard spelling in English and he will spend his entire life spelling it out, and most of the people he comes across will still spell it wrong, which gets a little wearisome.

It looks like a mistake to me.

As someone who has an unusual spelling of a name, please don't do it. I spend the whole time spelling or correcting my name for people.

Just don't. People will think you can't spell.

Looks horrible. Some people will think you are thick.

Gorgeous name, but Matthew is so much better.

No. Spell it right or spell it very wrong (if you must) but spelling it just a little wrong will be the bane of his life.

Ahaha, okay
