I was just looking at a names site (bogan baby names lol) and the name (girl) Xal was there....... Even though it was the bogan name site (people posted the most rediculous names and spellings they had heard or seen like feebee or caughtneigh ) I was unable to follow this name.....I'll post the pronunciation tomorrow..... I'd love to see your guesses...

Too funny - in lab reports I would often use xtal as an abbreviation. When I think about it the t should be unnecessary.

Sharon got it! So, here is the reasoning I read behind it.

We often spell Christmas as Xmas, so Xal (X-al) is Crystal (as in Christal).

Stupid? Umm, yes. Although, I just think I may have to change my COM name! lol This is a perfect spelling for me on the internet... hehehee Thanks Sal! I would have never known of this before.

BTW- I spell my name..Chrystal. Just to put that out there. lol I wonder if there is a weird spelling for Dawn (since I have often used that - it is my middle name - in the past, not so much anymore, though).

I was thinking with a click on the front (like the bushmen in Africa).

Going out on a limb based on Memes post - Estel?

Just by seeing it I was thinking Zall or Eks-ale

I know what it is but won't ruin it for everyone elses try... ;) It is my name, actually, I just spell it correctly! LOL



I just cheated after my posting (I don't like surprises), so will wait... heheheee



ETA:

It is a silly way to spell it but it does make sense, from how it was explained in what I read.

Exal?

To be honest, my first guess would have been Zal, but I see that isn't correct.



Stupid name no matter how you say it.

Ps. Sorry if Xal is your daughter but I'm guessing you are used to the question
