Nope. There is a name that is very similar to mine (Maarten) and that's Marten, but the pronounciation is different.
The pronounciation of Maarten comes close to the English pronounciation of Martin.

Some think there are, but they are wrong. It pisses me off because the 'alternative' is from a different language, which I used to speak a bit of, and when they use it as an alternative they are both insulting me and massacring the language, either of which I would find highly offensive.

I don't think their is another spelling to my name but a lot of time people spell my name Jully. Don't you think that is weird? (My name is Julie)

A lot of people mis-spell my name as Gillie, so I suppose there might be some people who spell it that way.

Marry, Marie, Mary, I can't think of any more.

Jewels: If your name really was Jewel, Jewell, Jewels, Jule, Jules, some idiots might spell it Jewl, which I have seen

Mary: I named my daughter Mary.. and thought about using the spelling "Merry" for a minute.. until I decided she would have to correct everyone who tried to spell her name wrong.

Gilly: Is your name pronounced with a "G" sound or a "J" sound?

I can't say there is any other way to spell my name. If it was spelled in some other way, then it wouldn't be my name. It would be someone else's.

There are many godless heathens out there who leave the "h" off the end of my name. Indecent, I say.

There are about 3 or 4 different spellings to my name...a lot more depending on how creative you want to be, but they are all wrong compared to the way I spell it.

Are "Lee" and "Leah" the same name? I would think they'd be pronounced differently. Leah is biblical - I don't know about Lee, but if I had to guess I would guess that it has a different derivation (and pronunciation). Then again, I knew a guy named "Reid" and everybody seemed to think his name should be pronounced "Reed", rather than "Raid", like I said it.

Lee is definitely not a biblical name, although I don't know its derivation; I doubt it's a shortened form of Leah, though.
