Baby Names

Misspelled last names...

If you saw someone with the last name of, for example, Smithe, and it was pronounced like the common last name of Smith, would you side-eye? I know a girl whose last name is a girl's first name, but it's spelled wrong. It bugs me, but I'm not obviously going to be saying anything about it. I mean, I know that last names usually aren't changed to be spelled "correctly".

What are your thoughts on this subject? 

ETA: I don't think I'm side eyeing it as much as I just am annoyed by something so obvious. I also am not talking about names that are hard to pronounce. I'm talking like Hailey is a girl's first name. I've seen the last name of Hailly, and it just bothers me to no end.
