My daughter now has her own bedroom. She doesn't want her sister to come in. She has made a sign.

"No Paiges Allowed!"

What is the correct apostrophy use on "Paiges" when I want to refer to multiple people of the same name?

EDIT: Follow up question: what if it was "No Chrisss Allowed!"?

    Apostrophes have no place in simple plurals. Apostrophes are only for when letters are omitted, and for possessives (but not possessive pronouns). – Andrew Leach Mar 3 '20 at 21:33

    If the name is "Paige" your quote is correct. – Davo Mar 3 '20 at 22:06

    You asked "EDIT: Follow up question: what if it was "No Chrisss Allowed!"?" I have not seen the name "Chriss", but the plural is Chrisses - Compare Lioness -> Lionesses. – Greybeard Mar 3 '20 at 23:14
