Being unique is sometimes confusing. If you are thinking of an alternative spelling for a name, make sure that name exists. Your child will always have people spelling her or his name wrong if their name is not in the normal realm of thinking. Also, it will be impossible to buy any name-associated products for your child including toys, ornaments and jewelry. You will have to have it personalized, which may mean more money and time. Example: Variations of Gary can be spelled Garry, not Gari.
Be more creative on your child's middle name. Use a name that may not work as the first name. The middle name may be the perfect spot for a relative’s name. Have fun with the middle name. Your child will thank you down-the-road.
