"I have a beautiful 9 year old daughter whom I named Makala. I am considering changing the spelling of her name because I do not want her to go through the annoying experience of teaching people how to pronounce her name as I had. With my name being french, Bone't; most people will immediately pronounce it as bonnet.
Should I keep it as is or change it to avoid a lifetime annoyance?
Thoughtso and or feedback would be appreciated!" Mar. 24, 2017:

"I am 29 yrs. old and my name is Makala. I absolutely love my name, it is unique and original, and I haven't had too much trouble with people being able to read and say it. This particular spelling is Hawaiin in origin, and actually means myrtle. I like it better than the run of the mill Michaela's, which is really just a feminized version of Michael. Which is strangely enough my only siblings name, hmmm." May. 5, 2008:
