Anyone seen or heard a name which has a ridiculous spelling? I was served in a shop today by a Georja.

Looked very wrong

Robynne. Laurayne. Keli.
I quite like unique spellings, but some just don't look right. I mean what's the point of adding to silent letters to Robyn.

I know this spelling is used but not often: a friend of mine has a Lillie.

Lillie is a pokemon cartoon anime. Also a lifetime of saying no it's not Lily it's Lillie.

Eevee so named because her df likes pokemon hmm I just think it means a lifetime of correcting other people's spelling.

Linzi for Lindsey, although maybe that is more common now?

I used to teach a Zowie (was still pronounced Zoe)

They just look really weird written down, like it's a spelling mistake confused

Goodness @EvilTwins that's one of the worst I've seen!

My daughters name is spelt Rikki, people always tend to writy Ricky.

I went to school with somebody called Leica- ie Lisa. Every time we had a new teacher she had to explain.

She's presumably spent her entire life doing this.

goose1964 Sat 09-Dec-17 17:26:22

is it a foreign spelling? i know of Jorja. My friend's daughter is Krysytyna bit that's the Polish spelling (DF is Polish)

ShuttyTown Sat 09-Dec-17 20:02:22

@goose1964 not sure, she didn't have an accent or anything but suppose it could be.

My goodness the Lisa one takes the biscuit, that's just horrendous!

Aimeee, Char (Cher), Ashleey, Tea (with no accent so should be Teà), Tygre (Tiger/Tyger), Bambiie,

tissuesosoft Sat 09-Dec-17 20:08:41

Mai and Mya but pronounced Mia. Leeanna (pronounced Leanne), Dyelan (Dylan/Dillon),

Wishfulmakeupping Sat 09-Dec-17 20:10:22

When I read the thread title I immediately thought 'Jorga' completely ruins an absolutely beautiful name

There's a Mykey- Mikey at my daughters pre school confused

FrLukeDuke Sat 09-Dec-17 20:14:07

I always read Carole and Iain wrongly

ShuttyTown Sat 09-Dec-17 21:32:04

Chelcie is dire!

SellFridges Sat 09-Dec-17 21:33:33

Olyviah. Or something like that. Awful.

There's a grayzie at playgroup. Her mum always gets annoyed when people say it as it's spelt so "grey zee" instead of "Gracie"

MrsFoxPlus4 Sat 09-Dec-17 21:36:57

Ciianne, pronounces Sian.
