I still pronounce it as E layn.

When my grandmother started school the kids called her Norma, even though her name was Nora May. She hated Norma, so decided to change her preferred name to May. She was born in the month of May.

Back when I was about 17, I added an E on the end of Ann. Now it is Anne.
I just kept using it, and now everything, SS, DL, and every other document known to me is using Anne. It took a decade to cross over. I like Anne better than Ann.

Elayne, phonetically, we would pronounce it Eee-lay-nee. Just sayin....

What ever you are comfortable with. The unusual spelling will cause some problems with others wanting to do the usual way. (like on documents, etc)

Hi, team!

I was just wondering, this is only for fun : do you prefer my name spelt Elaine or Elayne?

Of course I don't have much choice unless I go to the relevant government dept. if I want to change it to Elayne. But I think Elaine is more common and looks more 'normal' while Elayne is more unique and less common.

What do you think?
