Her name is Ericka, and when I think about honouring her with a name, it's always the "erick" part that is important. I don't think I'd use Ericka flat-out, but I've thought about Frederick for her.
Then again, if her name were Airyqua, then there's no chance I'd ever use that spelling lol.
I guess in general terms, I'd use the original spelling, but I'm definitely not opposed to variants (spelling or otherwise).
