Quoting Melissa_15:" The nice thing about it being my daughter, is that I can choose how I want to spell her name. There's ... [snip!] ... having a teen mom. I'm also pretty sure that I'm perfectly capable of spelling, so that has nothing to do with my decision. "
Let me give you a bit of unsolicited advice.
It isn't you that has to be proud and carry that name daily. A name is a gift you give your child that they should be proud of. Not something that they should have to be burdened by. She will forever have to correct spelling, perhaps even answer "How do you say that?" a few times here and there and it will be more of a hassle than something she is proud of. The name is NOT about you. It is about your child. You want her to have something that she can grow with. Something that if she decides to be a CEO of a fortune 500 company that her name commands respect.
Not that Bailey isn't a good name. Really, I think it is a nice name. Messing with the spelling doesn't make it "unique", it makes it look like you couldn't spell and your daughter will wear that forever.
This is the first decision that you make for your child that impacts her life for the rest of her life. Take it seriously!!!
