The H and I have decided we really like Linley/Lynley for our girl name. While I do not enjoy having random 'y's placed in names there is a children's author named Lynley Dodd (born 1941) and the actress Carol Lynley. Which spelling do you prefer?

Admittedly, the only Linley I've ever known was my 6'4" male upstairs neighbor, but I'd still go with his spelling...Lynley might have some history, but it reads more as y-for-the-sake-of-making-it-feminine.

Honestly, like it either way for either gender, though I'm sure everyone will assume girl either way.
