    I like Bridgette – looks prettier on paper πŸ™‚ Also if the middle name is Rene (though I always thought the feminine version of it was spelled Renee?) then the “Bridgette” spelling is more in keeping with the French style of the middle name

    Oh this is so subjective! I could understand how someone would prefer the French spelling because it looks lovely and feminine on paper, but I’m kind of a more modern-American biased lady, so I prefer the declarative, simple, and frill-free: Bridget πŸ™‚

    I like Bridgette better out of the options. Just to throw it out there, I know someone whose name is spelled Bridgid.

    I think I prefer Bridget, but only because I would actually pronounce Bridgette with a french twist.. like “Baguette”.. And I dont like that πŸ˜› 

    So Bridget for me πŸ™‚

    With the middle name Rene, I personally would go for Bridgette, just for consistency.  Bridgette is the French spelling and Bridget is the Irish version.

    Bridgette looks like it goes with Renee a little better, but I’ve always seen it spelled Bridget. I vote for the shorter one.

    Bridget is an Irish name, so I prefer the original spelling.

    @cirk:  yeah! these arent two different spellings of the same name (like sara/sarah) but 2 different names pronounced differently! bridgette sounds really stuck up to me.

    I vote for Bridget because that’s how everyone’s going to automatically spell her name for the rest of her life. Coming from someone whose name is always misspelled, trust me, it gets annoying.

    Bridget – it won’t get misspelled all the time that way and honestly, Bridgette kind of feels like it is trying too hard.
