MERCER COUNTY — At least my college friend Deborha O'Connor had an excuse for people perpetually spelling her name wrong: The hospital transposed the "h" and at "a" the end of her name. I don't think the university even got it right on her diploma. She was doomed to a life of frustration.
Don't cripple your kid for life. Keep it simple, people. Common spelling doesn't mean your kids can't turn out to be uncommon and special. Trust me, they'll thank you for it.
