Two comments:

First, if you go with Option B, resign yourself to having it mangled, both
in pronunciation and in spelling.  My byname is "Cheannlaidir," and folks
have trouble with that -- and it's pronounced as it's spelled.

Second, you don't have to make a decision now, just because you are
becoming a member; while there's a blank on the form for SCA name, you can
leave it blank if you want.  "Registering" as a member doesn't have
anythign to do with "registering" your name in its final form, which is a
separate process entirely.  My membership card has had three different
spellings of my SCA name, as it evolved, and nobody ever knew or cared what
was on there.
