    I passed this thread like 10x today and I finally clicked it to see why there were so many comments.

    I mistakenly thought the title of the thread was “Lies!” all day. Wondered what that had to do with babies lol.

    Love it, and please keep the original spelling.

    I agree that tweaking the spelling is a disservice. I have a lovely friend named Genevieve. Her mother spelled it “Genevive.” So she’s always telling people that they are misspelling her name, when in actuality, her mother probably just didn’t know how to properly spell it. It’s unnecessary confusion.

    You shouldn’t dumb the name down to make people more comfortable! We (Americans generally) could frankly use the exposure and education. Different doesn’t mean “wrong” or “weird.”

    I also thought this thread was about lies and just a typo. Never heard of this name in my life. Not a fan.

    cherrycoke: I really like this name! It helps that in the film that the character is one to be admired. I quite like its original spelling.

    cherrycoke:  It’s a German name…Liesl is traditionally a shorter form of Elisabeth…other short froms of Elisabeth that are more common in the US are Lisa, Elisa, and Elsa. I like Liesl but I was born in Germany so I might have a bias.

    I think Liesel would be easier for Americans to understand and pronounce.

    Liesl is the name of an old Alzheimer’s patient I used to take care of and she would go around into the other residents’ rooms and steal stuff! All under the guise of being a super sweet old woman. Sneaky little bugger, she was.

    I thought this thread was about some lies. .. ugh,  don’t call your baby “liesl “. The spelling is just too close, and will be a major PITA for the kid.

    I have a unique name and LOVE it! I really do. That said I only think this name is a little on the unique side because I’ve heard it before and I know it’s German from the movie. I think it’s really sweet. Go for it!
