Knowledge is the best spelling in my opinion.  Otherwise, you could spell it Noledge or something.  Knowledge Daphne would be a cute name as well as Knowledge Mae, Knowledge Campell and Knowledge Heather.

I'll be honest, spelling Knowledge incorrectly seems like a cruel joke. I think you'd set up your son for a lifetime of comments on not even knowing how to spell knowledge. In my opinion, you should spell it correctly or choose another name.

This. A creative spelling of 'Knowledge' is just too ironic for me.

It is a very bad idea to spell Knowledge incorrectly. 

I try to refrain from being negative, but this is truly setting your child up for an absolute lifetime of eye rolls behind his back.

I'm going to suggest Noble instead. 

Very cool, offbeat virtue name, and it has a cool look and is easier to spell.

I agree, and I would add the suggestion of Wisdom as an alternative.  I know of a family that has used Wisdom in several generations.

I am in agreement with recent posts. I'm not universally opposed to creative respellings, but I think in this particular case the meaning of the name makes it tease-worthy when the spelling is altered. I find Knowledge to be a really fun modern spin on the old fashioned virtue names, and the similarity to to Noel makes me find it sufficiently namey (and Noel could indeed be a nickname if little Knowledge wanted to blend in more at any point)... I just think this is one case where the spelling cannot be altered.

If knowledge's presence on frequently misspelled word lists is a barrier you don't want to pass on to your child, even armed with "knowledge has an edge" or "know where the ledge is" or some other mnemonic, I like the idea of considering other, similar names where the spelling is more straightforward. Wisdom and Noble are great suggestions, and I have also heard Sage, Logic, Reason, Evidence, True (or Truth) and Verity (and Veracity) suggested as names, all of which have a similar appeal. ETA: I see that Science just popped up in another thread as a suggestion with a history of use behind it, and I'd add that to the list as well.

I'll be honest: given your demonstrated inability to spell, you need to find something else to name your son. Misspelling "knowledge" would be ironic in all the wrong ways. Please don't do that to your poor innocent child.

There are other word-names in the same "meaning family" that (1) would be easier to spell, and (2) see more use as names, and thus maybe you won't have this urge to misspell them just to make them seem more like names. Sage is probably the best suggestion for you: one of its meanings is 'someone who has knowledge', it is very easy to  spell, and while it's not common, it's definitely a name. Noble could also work. I see Wisdom was suggested; it doesn't seem very namelike to me, but it's no worse than Knowledge in this regard, and it's easy to spell.

What names are significant to you? I think Knowledge would sound good with a one-syllable middle name like John or James, but those seem too traditional for you. Is there anyone you want to honor?

Yes my grandfather which is Lewie probly use Lewis the last name is Moll like mall but it just sounds like something left out maybe just me maybe if I keep saying it

I urge you to lisin to what they are trying to tell you girl

 

Knowledge the word it's self means to know...so if you spell it differently.  Your child the rest of their life will have to have convos over over with everyone and people crackin jokes about not spelling knowledge correctly doesn't show any knowledge. Your child will find it annoying to talk about and embarrising. I can see them eventually changing it. But they will always wonder why you couldn't have just chosen something else.

Obvisully you are aiming for something different.  .just stick around and search. You will find soo many unique names. Spelled in all kinds of ways. Just think about your child's future. It's not just a statement about your creativity it is their actual name they will have to carry OK

I've written and deleted a number of increasingly sarcastic replies to this. The best I can say is, I hope your son has a better experience with his name than my reaction to it.

While this name is definitely not my style, I appreciate that you spelled it 100% different than the word so that upon seeing it, it does not look like a misspelled word and instead looks like a made up name.
