Awstin Jefree!!

WTH! Why can't they stick with Austin Jeffrey???

Re: Horrible spelling! :(

  • I hate when people ruin perfectly good names like that. 
  • Could they possibly be joking?  That's probably one of the worst I've ever seen.

  • aaaaaaaaah yeah thats pretty bad i hope they are playing. There are some names you can get away with spelling slightly different but that is not one of them
  • Ick!

    I would un-friend her over that one.

  • Poor kid.  Everyone is going to think his parents are a couple of idiots.

  • why?  why?  why?  I'd rather someone name their kid Jupiter Moon Beam but spell it properly than saddle them with Awstin Jefree or whatever it was.  Wouldn't you rather shrug and say "yah, my parents are hippies" than shrug and say "yah, my parents are illiterate".
  • That's terrible. What goes through people's head?!
  • Woah...if you're friends with her, could you say something? I definitely would try...

  • Wow.  How close are you to these people?  Can you be brutally honest with them?   I'd even throw in some "WTF were you thinking?" type language in that conversation.

  • She's one of my co workers...so I called her today. I even offered to redo the letters of his name for his nursery that they already put up. She wasn't happy with what I had to say, but seriously poor kid I didnt care!! She said that both of their parents have told them that they should really reconsider the spelling. I think I will bug her about it again at work tomorrow!! Maybe there's still HOPE!
  • Interesting.  So rather than jumping on the dogpile, I would suggest that you be very supportive of her feelings, but point-blank ask her WHY she felt compelled to do such a strange spelling.   Make her do the talking.  Maybe hearing her lame rationale come out of her own mouth might knock some sense into her stupid head.

  • Her reason was that they wanted a "different spelling" since they are both common names.
  • Looks like a 5 yr old tried to spell it. I hope she changes her mind.

    Wow, it's still pronounced the same way, so spelling it different isn't going to help.
