Aubree or Aubrey merchandise

I am from the UK and having a baby next month and want to call her Aubree/Aubrey as my name is not spelt 'correctly', I can never just buy anything off the rack so to speak. I would like the little one to be able to occasionally get something as I don't think the name we have chosen is overly common.

So my question is

Has anyone seen a mug etc with the spelling Aubree or Aubrey.

Which is the most common in the US.

Thank you

Not at Disney, but I have found a mug and Christmas ornament with the Aubree spelling (my niece is spelled that way!). Some places, you can get personalized items made- Mouse ears, glass mugs with the glass etching, etc.

The most common spelling in the U.S. is Aubrey. I think it's a beautiful name -- not trendy, but classic and recognizable -- and I prefer the traditional spelling. I'm not a fan of creative spelling, especially when it comes to names.

Oh, and congratulations!

I also agree that Aubrey is the more common spelling, and I think it's a beautiful name. It may still be difficult to find personalized items just because its not a very frequently used name. Congratulations!

Aubrey is actually a boy's name; the girl's version is properly spelled Aubree. It is not a common name in the US; I have never known anyone with that name.

Actually, Aubree is quite popular, it was #99 in 2011.

Aubrey is very popular and was #20 in 2011. Maybe at one time it was a boys name but it is not used that way now, at least in the US. According to Social Security website Audrey used as a boys name is not even in the top 1000 names.


I think the name Aubrey is very beautiful!

I'd go with the Y spelling. I did with my daughter's name which can be spelled with an E or with a Y.

It is quite common in my neck of the woods. I know of quite a few little Aubrey's running around (and no Aubree's)

I think the name Aubrey is very beautiful!
It almost universally went over to being a girl's name in the early 1970's, thanks to the hit song by that name by the band Bread.

I've run into men named Aubry in the rural South on occasion, but almost nowhere else. IME, the male variation normally leaves off the E.

I've never seen "Aubree" anywhere, and if I did, I would assume kreativ spelling. The more common feminine alternative that I have seen is actually Aubrie, but usually only in places where French heritage is common.

My eldest grandaughter is an Aubriee. She's 16 now and wasn't fond of the name when she was small, but now loves it. It's uniquely hers and fits her. Due to the unique spelling, there is no one with her exact name. If you look, you'll see that I use her name as my screen name.

What's funny is her best friend is named Aubree Sinclair J......., and after they became friends way back in elementary school, the other Aubree started going by her middle name (Sinclair) to make it less confusing for their teachers and friends. Even her parents call her Sinclair now. The two girls are inseparable and you seldom ever see one without the other, so I've had an Aubriee and an Aubree spending the night at my house together more times than I can count.lol My GD's middle name is Shai and both of their last names start with a 'J', so both girls have the exact same initials (ASJ) too.

For that matter, my 8 y/o GS has a little girl on his soccer team this year named Aubree.
