I do like very yoonique spellings. I'll hold my hands up. I know I'm probably in the minority there, mind. My DD is Molly. I wished I'd have been a bit lot more creative now and gone for something like Molliegh.
All the others I'd spell the conventional way.
The boys names. I'd keep the same. I don't really like boys spellings being changed. Can't really say why.

Nowt wrong with a Molly

ah-ron (ah like the a in apple) Aaron or Arran but actually Aaron is more like Air-run to me.

Why?

EmmaWoodlouse Wed 15-Jun-16 16:00:23

Maisie

Macey

Casey

Lacey

Darcy

Kyra

Kiera

Lela

Leila

Maia

dunno... maybe Maya although I'd still think that was more likely to be pronounced My-a

Rhianna

Leanna

Liana or Leana

Boys:

Kayden

Jayden

Jacob (is there even another way?)

I'd personally go for Arran, because when I was younger Aaron was always pronounced "air-on" - but I'd probably assume a younger Aaron was also "Arran" nowadays.

Having said that, not many of these names are really my style - I can only imagine ever using Maisie, Jacob or Aaron/Arran.
