Ketuba What is the correct way to write the name leib. ליב או לייב ?

Question:

What is the correct way to write the name leib.
ליב או לייב ?
Thank you

Answer:

In the seforim it seems to bee ליב with one yud. However if the accent in a certain country is said with a strong accent on the yuds then in that country it would be with two yuds. For example in chasidish circles there is more of an accent on the yuds.
