Ok so really easy what do you think?
Obviously like Stanley...but spelt Stanlee like the guy who wrote all the marvel comics.

No. Definitely not. Stan Lee was not his real name - he was Stanley Martin Lieber but just went by Stan Lee as a stage name. Call him Stanley.

But your his mummy and it's about what you like flowers

But what about poor Stanlee? Having to put up with a crap name and a crap spelling of if?

Hang on, were you joking?

Lol hun. It’s about what’s fair on the child.

Actually it should be about what it will be like for a child to grow up with that name. Naming a child isn't just a bit of fun or an ego trip for 'mummy'.

^ This 100 times over!!!

I can just imagine the sniggers at every stage of his life when his name is at the fore - school register , job applications etc. The sniggers won’t be at him but people will perceive that his poor parents couldn’t actually spell his name right. I actually think that Stanley Lee is ok.

Are you high?

* I'm not a huge fan of made up spellings. How about first name Stanley and middle name Lee?*

His name would be Stanley Lee. That’s, in my opinion, worse than Stanlee (which is atrocious!). At least with Stanlee people would only realise it’s bad when it’s written down.

Give the kid a break and a name that will cause them no issues.

BeingATwatItsABingThing Sun 20-Oct-19 08:10:07

Bold fail there.

OB30 Sun 20-Oct-19 08:22:42

But Stan Lee's name is Stanley Lieber. Just spell it Stanley. Stanlee is ridiculous.

Morado Sun 20-Oct-19 08:33:38

It's a bit weird to basically name your child Stan Lee... My first thought was 'It looks like Stan Lee who wrote the marvel comics" and although he is/was a legend I didn't think that in a good way..

Spied Sun 20-Oct-19 08:35:03

Just. No.

Don't do it

OB30 Sun 20-Oct-19 08:41:35

My husband will be thrilled he came up with such a popular idea! 🤣

Robin and Marco both excellent choices.

Cyberworrier Sun 20-Oct-19 08:44:18

I think a few people would high five your husband for coming up with one of the funniest and silliest alternative spellings ever, and I say that as a Marvel fan!

Starlight456 Sun 20-Oct-19 08:48:02

The thing about different spelling of names you always have to spell them. Never can puck up the named cups things off the shelf believe me everyone must spelling your name is tiring.

ShippingNews Sun 20-Oct-19 08:51:38

No. You might love Stan Lee but his name wasn't Stanlee. Please don't do this to your child. If anything, Stanlee sounds like you are trying to make it a girl's name.

AJPTaylor Sun 20-Oct-19 08:52:33

Stanley Lee??? This is the thread that gives. Well done op for ruling out

XXcstatic Sun 20-Oct-19 08:55:25

I've got one - it is. I have to spell my name out every frigging time. It's worse than an unusual name, because it sounds ordinary and everyone thinks they know how to spell it, so they tend to write it down wrongly, even when I've spelled it out (think name pronounced Sarah but spelled Sara). Just spell your child's name the normal way.

horse4course Sun 20-Oct-19 08:56:07

How about Stan Stanley Lee?

Tell DH that Stanlee is bloody daft and to change his name if he wants a 'link' to a Marvel comic.
