Different spelling for mn Diane

I am hoping you ladies can help me with this: 

My mom's middle name is Dianne, she gave me the same middle name but spelled it Diane. I would like to pass this middle name on to my child if it's a girl, but I would like to change the spelling to keep that tradition going as well. Is there any other (classy) way to spell Diane?

I have checked out various name sites, but I haven't had any luck.

TIA!

Re: Different spelling for mn Diane

  • Sorry for the double post!  My internet has really been acting up lately, I didn't think the first attempt went through!

  • I'm 100% sure the only way to spell Diane is Diane.

    What don't you like about the spelling? Have you considered using Diana?

    This is what I was going to say.

  • I vote for the comment of the other post. Go back to Dianne. It honors your mother and then there's a sort of "skipped generation" factor going on.

  • Dianne, Diane, or Diana. I think that's about all the ways you can change it without making it look dumb (like Dyane :P)

  • I agree with PPs.  The only way I'd change it from Diane is if I were going to use Diana. 

    The only other possible way I can think of would be to drop the "e" from your mom's spelling and use Diann, but I think that looks stupid.

  • I agree with PPs that you should go back to Dianne.  Then if your daughter keeps up the tradition she could use Diane.  It could be an every other generation tradition!

  • I'd stick with Diane.  If you are interested in changing the name, rather than the spelling, I'd go with previously suggested Diana or Dina/h.

  • Diana is NOT the same name as Diane. It is not a spelling variation, either.

    Yup, this is what I was going to suggest, too.

    I love this idea.

    However, Dyan Cannon spells her differently. If you're doing it to honor your mom, use her spelling.

  • I have seen Dyan a lot too. I am not a fan but it is a somewhat common spelling. But I agree that you should go back to Dianne to honor your mother.
