I've never seen Clay spelt with a K.

Maybe they are starting their own Kardashian style family. All the 'K's...

Has anyone ever seen it spelt like this?

Clayton is ok, I understand it is popular in the US.

But....Klay...? Oh dear.

"No, no, that's Clay...but with a 'K"" Oh the poor child.

Having trouble saying Klay. It's harder than some words to get your mouth around. I was going to call one of my children Clem but then I tried saying it and it wasn't as easy as it looked.

I do know it's pronounced Ki, I still think they sound similar.
I wonder if they have a girls name picked out.

It's a stupid name. I don't give a tiny rats wank if that gives MN a bad name. It'd still be a stupid name even if it was correctly spelled Clay reflecting the connection with Cassius Clay.

DebsMorgan Oh goodness, no I don't hate K names at all.

We have friends with 2 young DCs and 2 dogs....all beginning with the letter J. Including Mum and Dad. Each to their own, but IMO its naff.

"I wonder if they have a girls name picked out."

I am going to put my money on Kia... grin

Clay would be bad enough, but Klay? That truly is awful. Krap, even. They arent really known for their taste or class though, are they? However I've had a bet with a friend than they'll have a daughter next and call her loam.

MomsNetCurtains Tue 21-May-13 12:19:49

squeakytoy grin Nice!

is there a K name prejudice tho? I mean, Karina is a beautiful name. Kevin (pronounced KeVAN) is popular in France, Kerry is a pretty name, etc etc etc. I think its the intentional mis-spelling that annoys me.

If he follows in his dad's footsteps will the tabloids use headlines like Feet of Klay?

Boschy I think its the intentional mis-spelling that annoys me.

YY! You've hit the nail on the head for me. Call your child what you want - this is just a bit of fun - but it is the intentional use of a K that makes me cringe.

i think it is a lovely name, personally i hate "normal" names and all the so called snobbery that goes with it, it its not you're child it has no impact on you!!!

my dds would hate a run of the mill common name!!
