Dumb spellings for children's names

Why don't people give kids normal names with normal spellings anymore? On this forum, I just read about a baby GIRL named Kyndal. KENDALL, to me, is the proper spelling for A BOY. I've also seen Kenadie, Tacey, Jace, Jayden. I think people just throw letters together anymore and say "oh, that's pretty and different!" and go with it.
I know a little girl whose middle name is "Richel." It's pronounced like "Rachelle," but it doesn't look that way. Why do people do this? Can't people give their children normal names anymore?
And yes, I have a normal, traditionally spelled name, as does my husband, and we don't have children - by choice.

I agree... although considering I have a little cousin named Jace, I must say I have a fondness for that way. And I don't care how you spell the name Jayden, I am sick to death of it.(And I think it is a wussy name for a boy anyway).

Here are some more I found on another site.

Tiyler

Hekter

Marrie, Marey, pronounced Marie

Leondra- a boy, pronounced Leon-Dray

Deondra- a boy, prounounced Deon-Dray

Rox'Canne

Crystal, Cristel, Kristel, Cristyl, and infinite variations.

Kemberlee

Jaxon

Shennel and Channel- both pronounced "Chanel"

And here are just some truly stupid names and/or spellings.
