Do people mis-spell your name?

People mis-spell "Greta" all the time...they spell it as "Gretta" or "Greata".

    My name is Finbar, yes I know its probly one of the weirdest you've heard. It's Irish so it can have many spellings. People spell it Phinbar, Fimbar, or Finber. My sister's name is the worst. It's Aoife, pronounced EFFA. People spell it Effa, Efa, Epha, etc..

    Actually, one cannot actually misspell Japanese names, since they use Kanji symbols, not an alphabet. Miyuki may become Mee Yooki, Meuki, etc. Kyojin might be Kio Jeen, Kyou Gene, etc. There are usual ways of rendering most names in Romanji that corresponds to Roman letters used in the USA.

    Lol who doesn't have their name misspelled? Haha. People like to misspell my name in several ways like: Kristopher, Christopher, Christofer. Makes sense considering Kristofer. Being spelled that way is not usual haha

    Just a little, sometimes people would be kind enough to ask me how they spell my name, almost everyone does! It's actually cute!!! The Sub teacher I had on Friday was going to write my name S-h-a-u-n-a, but it's actually Shawna..

    You would be surprised how many people mis spell Anthony.

    Most of the time they leave out the H.

    Or they leave out an O and turn it into an A.

    Then for those wonderful people, they call me Tony...I don't like that.

    Good luck!!

    My name is pretty common, most people don't really mess it up. But I do get the occasional people who will spell it with an "s" instead of a "z".
