Hey everyone. My name is Vidhya and many will leave the letter 'h' while typing my name. I will just get irritated when anyone does that. I will reply them asking them to spell my name properly. I just couldn't leave that. Hehe. Do you do like this or will just leave that???

as my name is not easily spelled, i will understand if people often misspell my name. before i also get mad and even think to take proper legal action against them but now i am getting used to that. so i will just nicely correct them, or if it's not necessary to have my name correctly spelled, i will just let it be. anyway, you get a nice name. does vidhya means knowledge, education or something related with them?

Vidhya your getting annoyed for someone misplacing the letter 'h' in your name,but for me some people instead of telling my name as "Divin" they will say it as devil.I wont get angry for that I will just tell them its 'Divin' not 'devil'.If you get irritated for that simple reason of misplacing a word,I should kill that person for calling me a devil.Hehe.LOL.Happy to hear from you that you don't like to be called as Vidya.Cheers to you.Happy mylotting.

I will correct that. It is very easy for people to write the name wrong. If that person is someone I don't know I will just correct him and will not be angry. But if that person is one of my friends, I will think he is not seriously to make me his friend, and I should make him as someone else rather than a friend. Being angry is bad for my health, I should be happy all the time.

the mistake in spelling of name done by mistake.ok.so , you don't have to feel bad when somebody make mistake in your name spelling or don't be angry on them.you have to atleast give one chance him or her to don't repeat this mistake again..and forgive them. in other way, if you get angry .its your loss that you loss your energy,leads to diseases when you get angry.the understanding between the people that make mistake and you is lost. so,its upto you which way you will choose.

vidyhyavini hi yes I do as Patsie Hatley is not that hard to spell. but I get Patsy Hateley, or Hartley, or Haley or' Hadley or Hatly but not hatley and sometimes I get Patsoe Hately which I really hate ugh. Hatley.what is so hard about that. Patsie what is so hard about that. I correct them as I dislike being called Hately,sounds hateful. Even when I had my first baby they got things mixed up, brought me a girl with name of Hadley and also she was colored and I am caucasian so they should have known they had the wrong baby. I had a boy, white, Hatley so they did get it straightened out the negro mama screaming this isnt my baby what did you do with my baby? She came to every room then spied her baby in the nurses arm and she said I apologize mrs here is your baby, nice little boy this one. We became friends while I was in there.

It doesn't bother me. My name is Cecelia and people spell it wrong all the time. The thing that bothers me more is when I answer the phone, people thing I'm a man. My voice is a little low but not that low. Very irritating.

no, i don't get angry. people have a tendency to add an e to my last name. i just tell them in a nice way it doesn't have an e. you have an unusual mane & i wouldn't know how to spell it either if u told me your name. nothing to get irrated about i don't think.

No, not really. But then again I don't use my actual name on here so there's no reason for me to get upset over something like this. However people have misspelt my mylot username several times now. It is sacmom, not sacmon. LOL Not a big deal, though I do wish I would have chosen something prettier for my username. The only reason I chose this one to begin with was because I couldn't think of anything else at the time and with being a mom in the Sacramento area, sacmom was the best I could come up with. LOL

As long as they dont spell it in a rude way lol thats fine with me,but no I really dont mind if someone spells my name wrongly,it doesnt really matter,and there are some names that are very hard to spell so we all would just take our very best guess at the spelling.and some names are quite hard to pronounce too,but I will just try my best.

If thats the case, then if a person does the mistake for the first time then its fine. Won't you mind, even if they spell your name wrong after you have corrected thm so many times? Happy to have your response.. Happy mylotting.

Yes, this of course in annoying. People, sometimes, do the same thing with my name also, which I consider, is not too difficult to spell. But, normally, either I ignore the same, if it is done for the first time, or I correct them politely. But, still this leaves somewhat a bad feeling inside me. I wonder, how much people are ignorant or they just don't care for other's feelings. Anyway, world is like that only and this kind of things are more frequent then not.
• India

Ya I do feel the same. When they are hurting others feeling why don't they change that??? Some people repeat the mistakes again and again. Thats really irritating.

Ya you are right. It has the same pronunciation. But still it looks so odd to be written as Vidya than Vidhya. Hehe. Lol.

i don't really care if someone spells my name or says my name incorrectly, maybe it's because they're not just used to saying or typing foreign names, and i can understand it. heck, im a foreigner too (not american), and i've seen so many people who spell or say my name incorrectly, and i'm okay with that :) but making fun of my name just because it sounds soooo different is different issue, and that ticks me off
• India

They should atleast change it if we say them the correct spelling right??? Still some people will continue the same. I will get irritated only with those people. Happy to have your response. Happy mylotting.

Of course they don't do this on pupose. But they doesn't take extra care in what others feel and that makes them spell the name wrong the next time also. Haha. Happy to have your response. Happy mylotting.

It doesn't bother me if someone spells my name wrong. I have an easy name to spell, it is only a few letters, Chris, but believe it or not a lot of people spell it Cris. I don't get it because it is just about like christmas so why the confussion? But it doesn't matter to me if they spell it wrong. I can see why someone would spell your name wrong. I have never even heard of your name before. So I would probably spell it wrong too, I am sure. If someone spells my name wrong I just ignore it and don't correct it. It isn't that important so why make someone feel bad that they spelled it wrong. Alrighty then, talk to you later my friend, Have a good mylotting day, Chris

My name is so very common in India. I feel the names as an identity for us and I feel irritated if a person continously spells it wrong. Who knows, I may be angry if you spell my name wrong as well. Lol. Happy to have your response.. Happy mylotting.
