Best way to spell "Callan" - please help, today is the due date!!!
I'm writing for a friend whose due date is today! Her husband's family is Irish and they are planning to name their new baby "Callan". Big brother is named Brendan :)
They are still trying to decide on a spelling. Here are the issues:
1. They want people to pronounce it "KAL-in", not "KAY-lin", or like Collin.
2. Dad is not loving the double-L.
Here are the options I see. Which do you think is best? Does anyone know the traditional Irish spelling of this name?
Calan (would people prn this "KAY-lin"?)
Calin (would people prn this "KAY-lin"?)
Callen (would people prn this like Collin?)
Calen (I think this would def get prn "KAY-lin", am I right?)
