    Yeah, I'm a Karen with the same issue. It contains five letters, it's an extremely well known basic name and there isn't really another way to spell it but people butcher it all the time with extra 'r's or ask me if it's 'with a C'??

    It's much easier to just start by saying 'I'm Ren.'

    I'm Rachel and I get nametags, letters in the post, birthday cards from my family, posts on facebook etc.. all with my name spelled Rachael.
    Once I even got a coffee in Starbucks with Rechel on it and I have a friend who spells my name Raichll for some reason - I mean that really just looks like a random collection of letters!

    I have met a Karin, Karyn, and Caryn - so yes there are several ways that Karen can be spelled.

    My name is Marianne and the only problems I have had with it are

    -the lack of keychains/pens etc with my name on it.
    -spelling (I've see Maryanne, Maryann-Mary-ann, Marieann etc)
    -Sometimes people mishear me and call me Marion, Marianna, Mary-Ellen, Marissa(seriously people?)

    But despite all that, I still love my name.
