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).

    If the name is "Paige" your quote is correct.

    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.
