Why is Jhonny Peralta of the Indians name spelled Jhonny? Did his mother not know how to spell Johnny?

    Haha that's actually somewhat accurate. They accidently spelled him name wrong in the hospital when he was born and the parents liked it so they kept it that way.

    There are such things as different cultures. Which is why no one in Germany would have the name Juan. It's just a name. People spell names differently. Like Jon and John.

    people spell names differently so they can be unique.

    Only him and his parent might know. Unless he tells teammates or other people.
