    I had a professor whose first name was “Verity.”  She was an extremely accomplished, intelligent, confident woman, but she said that she hated her name growing up.  

    As someone who also has a name that is always misspelled, I agree with everyone else who said that it’s a hassle.  Your child will be unique and special for so many other reasons- you don’t need to pick a difficult name to make her stand out, if that’s your reasoning.  If you’re picking a name because it holds some significance for you, then I say go for it and don’t let other people’s opinions persuade you, but be prepared for your daughter to blame you for any difficulty arising from her name.

    I like Bronwyn. I know one in real life, although she spells her name differently, and she is quite beautiful, so I have a positive association with that name.

    @princesslettuce14:  mine, unkike my SILs, isn’t made up, it’s just “original.”  I just wanted to give my perspective. My name may have been a reflection of my mom 30 years ago, it’s just a PITA for me now. Although I admit I’ve never heard those names.

    @BridieBea:  I hate everything except Guinevere, but maybe because that’s my top girl name pick too. I would call her Gwen though. I was also thingking Gwendylon.
