What do you think of this spelling for boys name....

If we have a Chat Icon his name will be Aidan Michael but we were thinking of spelling Michael.....Micheal which is the Irish spelling (the other way is hebrew). We thought it would be different but I can't help thinking that people are going to think we spelled our sons name wrong....I've never seen it the other way.....what do you think?

Sorry, but I think your son will have everyone spelling it Michael, not Micheal...it looks like you made a mistake in typing it.

I love when people spell common names differently, but that way is so close! I had a student in my class last year named Mikal pronounced Michael. I thought that was unique.

I agree, he will constantly go through life correcting people. I think it is just too similar.

A kid from HS spelled his name Majikal or something like that, but it was pronounced Michael.

I can't tell you for me as an adult now it's annoying to have to constantly correct people with the spelling of my name. I am sad to say that I can see my DD is going to have the same problem. We spelled her name in the Spanish spelling with one L and people are spelling it the Italian way with 2 LL's it bothers me. I wanted to 2 LL's but DH like the L so now the little bugger will be stuck like me. If it's a first name I agree with the others I would spell it the common way. If it's the middle then go for the Irish way

Re: What do you think of this spelling for boys name....

it's a matter of your own choice....I'm in the same boat. I have a unique name (Shana) and I've had issues with it all my life (whether it be spelling or pronouncing). DH has a middle name with a different spelling too (Fredric instead of Frederick).

We picked a more "normal" name but we are choosing to spell it uniquely...Alyson.

I like making names more unique because it adds individuality, but with a name lke Michael, it might be hard since everyone is used to the traditional way. Of course, as he gets older:

What's your name?"
"Micheal, spelled the Irish way"

We do it with our address....we live on Rebekah drive (most people spell Rebecca, so we say Rebekah, the biblical way)

I forgot it was the middle name, I think it is less of an issue since you dont write your middle name as often.

In that case, I think you should do whatever makes you happy.
