Spelling something incorrectly doesn't make it unique or feminine. I like MRE. Or how about Typo?

Then again, this is coming from someone who named their child "Andrew". Maybe I should have done it Ahnd-rew.
Or JhAnjh'dru

Of course the the jh at the beginning is silent and the jh in the middle sound like an--but you knew that right

I would go with Emerie. I think that is a beautiful name and a perfectly reasonable spelling. The most that she will get if you spell it like that is "Y" or "IE". But not everyone will know how to spell it anyway. But I definitely dont like it with the O in the middle. Dont listen to people tell you to name her Emma or Emily. There will be a million of them in her class or school and Emerie is different without being crazy.

I like Emarie. Geesh guys give the guy a break. I named my daughter Trinitee. Honestly the way I came up with that is very strange but I like it. The only time it annoys me is when I call places to make an appointment and I have to spell the name out or when my Mom had a xmas ornament made for her and spelled her name Trinitte. (She claims the guy who made it made the mistake) but other than that I like what I chose.

But some ideas are Emarie, Imory, Imarie.

Parents hang an odd name on a kid because THEY like it. But the parents aren't the one being teased on the playground. The parents aren't the ones spending the rest of their life correcting people on how their name is spelled or pronounced. The parents aren't the ones who can't find a ruler or a cup or a pin with their name on it, like their friends can.

Think of your child, not yourself.

If anyone wants to see unusual spelling taken to a new level, watch Toddlers and Tiaras.

Sorry but you have no one to blame but yourself when you're "annoyed" at having to spell her name out. YOU chose to spell it that way, not other people.
