Meh I feel like no matter what you will have to correct something, either spelling or pronunciation. My name is Lindsey and I have to correct people on the spelling all the time.

I agree. We are calling our little one Annabel and going with the German spelling rather than the French. I'm already having to correct family members who've come up with the expected Annabelle but also Anabel, Annabell, Anabell..!

I have an unusual surname, spent my whole life spelling it or pronouncing it for people. Sometimes I've wished for an easier one but overall, it's not been a major bother in my life! I wouldn't over think it too much, go with the spelling you like rather than worrying too much about people in the future!

Thank you for that, you're right I should dwell on what others are going to do but how we like to spell it. I've gotten used to spelling it as Madelyn but Madeline does look pretty. We still have a few months to decide

Annabel is a beautiful name Guess no matter the name there may be corrections. DD1 is Amelia and for reasons unknown both my grandparents and DH's grandparents kept spelling Emelia.

Lol your name could be Sarah or John and people would still spell it Sara and Jon. Too many options nowadays.

This is true! Hubby is liking Madelyn now so I think that's the spelling we're going to go with Madeline I just can't not read it as Mad-e-LINE and that's not the name we want. And Madeleine just looks too busy to me, I feel like whenever I would spell her name I would have to write it down to get it right.

All the Madalines at my sons school are Mad-a-line and not pronounce Lin/Lynn so that is interesting. The two 'n' version looks better than one 'n'. I don't like names with letters exchanged for 'y' though it always bothers my brain.
