    What's the point of having a name if you constantly have to clarify the spelling every single time?

    McDonald

    With a Mc or a Mac?

    Stephen with a ph or a v?

    Kathy with a K or a C?

    I won't even get into Meghan, Kaitlyn, Caitlyn Sarah Sara etc.

    It's time to streamline all these stupid names. One spelling each.

    Black names don't count. They are a whole other issue.

    I used to work with a guy who spelled it like that and his friend would always spell my name like that. Drove me nuts. I had a right to be angry because my name is spelled properly. Double the final consonant to keep the vowel short. When he bitched about people spelling his name the proper way, I said "Shut up Scote you long vowelled faggot."

    I went to school with a girl named Dahlene. Her parent's actually spelled her name with a Boston accent. :facepalm:

    That's fine. As long as you spell it properly.
