If your name is spelled like "Asch'lye," rather than Ashley or some other normal spelling, you really shouldn't get all pissy when people misspell your name, amirite?

You shouldn't be mad at the person who misspelled your name, but rather mad at your parents.

I've never understood these alternative spellings. I've seen Taylor written as T-heylar.

...why?

The craziest name I've seen spelled and pronounced is L-a. Literally pronounced La-dash-a.

Quartney instead of Courtney...

If your parents gave you an oddly spelled name, then I can understand how it would get exasperating when people keep misspelling it. But if you were given a normally spelled name and changed it yourself to be 'unique', then it's your own fault, and you have no right to get mad.

My name is 'Ashley', but I spell it A'gh'toshmelAy (The gh'to and the me are silent.)

That's actually an acceptable spelling, though. I'd be kind of annoyed if people pronounced it wrong. If it was my name, obviously.

Yeah it's the French spelling. But I have a colleague with the French spelling , Adrienne, but we pronounce it like "Adrian", and not in the french way.

It's reasonable to be annoyed, just not surprised.

@Laguakat It's reasonable to be annoyed, just not surprised.

Not annoyed at the person, just annoyed at the inconvenience and/or at the name itself.

@Laguakat It's reasonable to be annoyed, just not surprised.

Why would it be reasonable to be annoyed that a person spelled it the way it is usually spelled if they have never seen that way?

One time my school had a bank-quit instead of a banquet...

I love Kingsley <3
