So one of my wonderful Aunts makes a family directory and updates it every year so that everyone in the family is able to keep in contact and be able to reach each other. It really makes things a lot less stressful if your planning a wedding, baby shower, sending out christmas cards, and so on. I am so very grateful for the hard work and time she spends on doing this for our family!
So when I got the email today of the directory my Aunt asked everyone to check our information and if there was anything wrong to let her know so she could fix it. So I looked down the list for "King" and there we were Taylor & Eva Jane then next to our name was our son's name but I was very surprised by the spelling... Kristoffer. I didn't really think anything of it I thought it looked kinda cool.
Later today I got an email from my father with a subject title "Baby Names". When I saw this a smile came across my face. I knew my dad had something interesting to say about the spelling of Kristopher's name. My father went on to say..
Did you see the way your baby's name is spelled on the family directory? Is that how you're planning to spell it - with ff rather than ph? I haven't heard one way or another. FYI:

(Based on 128 years of name history) In that year it ranked #729. The last time Kristoffer appeared among the most common names was in 1980. Our records go back to 1880
After reading this email I became very interested in this spelling and asked Taylor what his feelings are on the matter. Of course my amazing husband said I don't really care.. What ever you want to do haha. This made things so much easier.
Know I am having this tug of war with myself on which way to spell my sons name. I like Kristopher but I feel like Kristoffer is different and has character. I also am Scandinavian so it has that meaning to me. So this is my big dilemma now, how to spell my sons name. I guess I have a small amount to decide but I'm just really not sure.
What is your opinion? Which one do you like? I would love to hear from yall!
Till Next Time!
