This goes on the top of the list of most fucked up spellings of decent names.  I just don’t get why people fucking do this?  You still pronounce it Erin — why not just spell it that way?  Your little bundle of joy will still be her own person.  She will still be unique.  And, since she is your kid, she will still probably grow up quickly as she has to care for her fucking brain dead parents.

Eviscerating the common spelling of names does nothing other than cause headaches for your child and the rest of us trying to read her name.  I suppose that doesn’t matter to you though, since you weren’t thinking of anyone but yourself when you named her in the first place.

So will her classmates start calling her Aerhead in sixth grade or seventh?

It depends, Rebecca. If she goes to school with normal kids, probably as early as the 4th grade. If she goes to school with a bunch of Breckstins, Eydees and Makinleys — probably much, much later (sadly).

I went to school with a girl named Ahren…never understood why it was spelled that way

Why is Aeryn a stupid name?

Aeryn is nothing like Erin. Erin is said Eh-rin, Aeryn is Air-in.
