Which is 'correct'? The third is DS2s 2nd middle name and I always knew this as the right version but people keep telling me I have spelt it wrong! (Noticed someone in Hollyoaks called 1 or 2 but that isn't where I chose it from!) Have I???

Malachi - or at least i think - that's the biblical version anywhoo. (This was my fave boys name! But a friend got there first! ) smile

Refer them to the bible - it's in there with your spelling. Tho I will add - i dont think people should be telling you it's the wrong spelling. Quite often the spelling of one name can vary quite a bit and it's up to you to choose which one you like best.

I have a Zoe, Sophie and Jasmine.

But have also seen them spelt

Zoey, Sofie and Jazmin/Jasmin.

So are my spellings also wrong?

I know a Malachi, spelt that way.

Malachy is a name used in Ireland, but I'm pretty sure Malachi is a/the biblical way of spelling it.

Malacky is just terrible

No pinkdolly, your spellings are right The others are not so great though...
