Rebecca or Rebekah?

We have a Thomas and and Elizabeth, so we are a very traditional named family. Which spelling of Rebecca/Rebekah would you use?

Did you ever have trouble with people spelling it "kah" or was it always assumed it was "cca"?

As much as I like the "kah" I don't want her to have to explain how to spell it everytime. BUT, maybe that's true for both spellings. What was your experience?

Re: Rebecca or Rebekah?

Rebecca is most common here. Very few people ask if it is spelled "kah" most just assume it is "cca." I think she would end up spelling it out more if you used "kah." Will you call her Rebecca or a NN like Becca or Becky?

Most likely the full name, as both of our other kids are referred to by their full names. Although, I do like Becca/Bekah.

Thanks for your input!

i'd vote 'cca'
im a rebekah. hated it for a long long time
nobody ever spelled it right. nothing personalized with my name unless it was special ordered, but 'rebecca' could be easily found
hated it hated it
had a stint as 'becky' in 3rd grade, my parents refused to call me that so it didnt stick
when i was 13 i became becka and i have been since
and my dad will call me that, most of the time


i must say i like the look of rebekah better, but i couldn't stand it for a long time, and now i only can because its not what i go by

Rebecca all the way.

Odd spellings of regular names are a bit of a pet peeve of mine.
