Samuel is the traditional spelling, which I prefer.

Immediately reminds me of the island in Thailand - Koh Samui.

As Cinnabubble said Samuel is the correct spelling. I really dislike it when names are spelt incorrectly. I love Samuel but hate Samual.

I also really dislike Kai. It looks either made up or a misspelt girls name  sick.gif


Sorry you must not have realized I had misspelt Samuel..

Love Samuel OP... Kai doesn't really float my boat.

It makes me think of Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber's son, Samuel Kai, who I think they call Kai?

I'm not really a fan of Kai, but I love Samuel. Despite that, I can see why Kai appeals to some people, it's just not my kind of name.

I really dislike Kai, a lot. Samuel is nice. I'd go with that as a first name and use Kai as the middle name if you must.

That's almost my son's name. Except replace Kai with Jai.

Friend of mine just had a Malachi (not in Australia). I was sliiightly NOOOOO but only because it was on the short list of names DH and I both like.

I also like Mordecai which cuts easily down to Cai. But DH does not. sad.gif

Mordecai immediately makes me think of the cartoon The Regular Show. I've never heard it elsewhere?

I thought the same thing.
FWIW I like both those name but together they just look too much like Koh Samui.
