Jordan or Jordyn?

Mike and I are at a stand off. Jordan is my maiden name, and I have always wanted to name my first daughter that. As time gets closer, I want to change the way of spelling it...but Mike won't hear of it. I think that the "yn" makes it more feminine, I want it to be different, but still my name. WE want your opinions!!

That is a 'tuff' one! I personally love the 'yn' I think it is very pretty and girlie. Glenn would say stay with the 'an' because it's traditional and easy for people to spell and get stuff personalized and blah, blah, blah. I love the name! She is going to be a cute little Jord-- either way!

i like "yn", more fem. but either way is great. jordan is a family name for me as well and boys and girls both have "an". i vote "yn"

Well, I like Jordan, cuz the family spelling and all, but yn sounds more girl like. I am totally a traditionalist on name spellings...so my vote is Jordan.

Well I like the yn as well. Jeff's sister had a little girl and named her Jordyn and she is adorable. So I am sure if you do yn she will be adorable too. :)

Shalene,

I can't believe I found you!!! I was reading a blog belonging to a friend, then I clicked on one of her friend's blog and one of her friends on the side said "Shalene." I thought, could it really be her! It is me, Sarah (Taylor)Wright. It is like when we ran into each other at the Marriott center at my first CES fireside. What are the chances of that? I loved seeing pics of Hal and his sweet little girl. Congrats on your upcoming baby girl. I am partial to girls because i have 3!!! Check out my blog if you want. Tell your fam hello. Jana Barrington just has a baby girl, she named her Brooklyn.
Lots of love
