    If you like it, go for it!  If it were me, I’d spell it Ophelia.

    Ditto pp, I would spell it correctly: Ophelia.

    If you like it, you should use it! We decided we like our girl name, even though a lot of people don’t. = )

    @beekiss: I agree with the spelling. That’s how I see it in my head.

    @stephanie63087: I like it! It’s an old name which I usually am always partial to.

    I agree with PPs about the spelling.  If your grandmother spelled it the way you posted it then I can see using that version.  I just think the “ph” version looks better.

    I agree with the PPs in that I’ve seen it spelt Ophelia so I prefer it that way.

    But if you would want to spell it that way to honor your grandmother, then go for it!

    I always think of the Adam Cohen song ‘Cry Ophelia’ when I hear that name 🙂 Beautiful though!

    I love that name. Not a fan of Ashlyn (t’s becoming very common– I know 3 babies withthat name!), but Ofelia is beautiful!

    I like it – it’s my cat’s name (Ophelia). I’m a huge Shakespeare fan and knew I loved the name, but personally couldn’t name a baby after that character (I like happy thoughts!), so the kitty got it instead.

    But, since it’s a family name, I love it for the baby. And even though I personally prefer the PH spelling, going with the family spelling it’s bad. You might get some questions about it, so just be prepared with “well, it’s an old family name, and that’s how we spelled it.

    Its simple, which is what I like in names and it’s not a common name. Don’t over think baby names.

    Ofelia is the common spelling for the name in Hispanic communities. It is my FI’s grandmother’s name too. And will be our second girl’s name, if we don’t end up having all boys!
