The other day I saw somebody's name online with a weird spelling. That's not unusual, but the name was "Jaine." Basically, Jane. You can't get more basic than that. Jane. Why would somebody do that? Do they think it's cute? It's not. It's annoying.
I used to work in a doctor's office and the people who spelled their kids names in what I assume they thought was an exotic and unique way would get all huffy if I started writing, for example, "Jane" without a freaking "i." Pains in my ass.
Here are some more I found online:
Payge = Paige
Emilee = Emily
Cacey = Casey
Keven = Kevin
On another note, while I was Googling...um, researching...weird name spellings, I found out that I'm not the only person who doesn't know how to spell Gaddafi/Kadafi/Qaddafi.
