If I had a penny for everytime my name was misspelt I would be a very rich man. It is very unusual for someone to get both first and second name correct. Because it happens so often I have pretty much accepted it, however the one thing that does get me is when I am referred to as McDonald. People hear the Mac/Mc and assume the rest...

On a vaguely related matter, I used to live next door to a McDonald and his first name was Ronald !! and to be fair to his parents he was christened before the fast food chain started........

Slighty different note - my surname is simple yet consistently I am asked how it is spelt.

How many different ways is RYAN spelt!

In fact I am aware that there is a Ryun but it is very rare.

Moira..that sounds irritating.

You know what ..this is going to be a very long thread!!

As I have two Christian names and no Surname, I called by either easily.

I am kind of used to it now...call me anything you like, but get the name right on the cheque.....

Hehe, am I allowed to withdraw this thread on the basis that so many people have sent their best wishes over the weekend, some of whom chose to call me Steph.

I've noticed that all over the place ... was wondering if they were doing it deliberately now!

If you see a typo in my post ... well, that's just proof that even Proof Fairies need proof fairies!
