Creative spelling

From German Names

A creative spelling is a spelling variant which is different from the common spelling of a name. Creative spellings are regarded to be exotic and interesting to some people but to others they might just look like annoying misspellings of a name. Bearing a name with a creative spelling usually means that the person will have to spell their name whenever someone else is supposed to write it down.

Please note that creative spellings in German speaking countries might be the standard spelling somewhere else in the world!
