3 different spellings.. which should i go with?

im adopting a male basenji tomorrow, by the name of rawley. i dont like the spelling, so i was thinking..

rawley (hmph)
raleigh
rahli

what do you think? which should i go with? what different kinds of spellings could i use?

I'd go with the standard Raleigh but Rahli is neat too and a little different.

I like all 3 but I'm something of a traditionalist so I lean towards Raleigh.

i was leaning towards raleigh as well. thanks everyone!

I vote Rahli

he's a basenji, he has to be unique! Where are you adopting him from?

If you go with the unusual spelling, you will be forever correcting the spelling with every vet or anyone else who might have need to write down his name. I like simple easy names, I probably would go with Rally!

Congratulations! Welcome to Raleigh, or Rahli, or…whatever you decide to name him (new life, new name)

I like them all! Rahli looks kinda neat, though…:D

I like Rahli.
Basenjis are unique…I think the names should be too 🙂 But either way...I love the name!

Not to add to the mix (okay I am) but how about rahlee?

😃 LOL. I would certainly hope so!

Oooops! I feel goofy now… :p

Oh well - we had fun rehashing it all 🙂

He's probably named "Dammitt" like most basenjis.

Good one!!! 😃 LOL 😃 😃
Too, too funny…

That reminds me of an episode of "JAG", when the Admiral gets a new German Shephard and decides to name it Dammit. 😃

I also vote for Rahli, it sound like name of Egyptian farao :D.

I like Rahli too…looks more exotic. Raleigh brings to mind a brand of cigarettes. 🙂

I love it look at the date.

Yeah, yeah…:o

No idea how this got kicked to the top. But it was fun anyway. 😃
