User Rating: / 3

Looking for an awesome baby name with a unique twist? Sometimes changing up a letter or two is enough to give a baby name that uncommon look and feel, and can help your kiddo stand out from her classmates. Here are a few ideas for changing up a classic family name, which can be a fun idea for those seeking both tradition as well as something unique.

Changing up a name

Baby girlSome classic or traditional baby names are easily changed with a substitution or alternate ending. Easy substitutions are a C for a K or a Y for an I -- and vice versa. Names that end in an "ee" sound can sub -eigh (such as Ashleigh for Ashley) or -i (such as Traci for Tracy). You can also easily add an H to names that end in A (such as Annah for Anna), swap F for PH (such as Phinn for Finn), or jazz up an "n" sound at the end of a name (such as Peytyn for Peyton). Does the name have AY in it? Swap out AI or AE, such as Jae, Braiden, Mae or Kae.
