    Agreed. It's just not a good look or experience having a common name that's so uncommonly spelled.
    Even something like Cathrine can be a big pain.

    What I'd like to know is at what point did we start accepting alternative spellings as "legitimate" spellings? If it's one that's used by another culture that's perfectly acceptable but if it's just Kr8ve then it's just misspelled.

    I agree completely. It baffles me that people think common names spelled oddly are "unique." Only the spelling is unique, and unique is not always a good thing.

    I totally agree, and what's worse, is that if you say the name wrong, the parent gets all upset.... well if you want me to say it correctly, spell it correctly.
