I have a common first name and people always ask for the spelling. My last name is long and people ask for the spelling of that too. My ds has a name that has to be spelt, not because its an uncommon spelling but because it comes from a different culture. I also think people's spelling in general is pretty crap so lots of things need to be spelt

I have an uncommon last name (not quite the same) but no one ever gets the spelling, when I say my name I automatically spell it with out thinking.. It doesn't bother me.
Not do people ever know how to pronounce it. I just think its funny, I don't however correct them if they are wrong and I don't have a close relationship with them
I'd go for it

My name is a varied name my maiden name and married is the same. Before marriage id make sure they'd place an e on the end and today I'm forever telling them to place a y in my name and last name is u not e and I even get people spelling my name so wrong it's another name sometimes.
You get used to it.

I have a name that I have to spell for everyone and it's unusual and although I love my name I absolutely hate spelling it out all the time. People do ask you to spell your name, but they then hear what they think they hear and spelling makes very little difference. As a result I answer to various names to keep it simple. No point correcting people constantly, it's a waste of energy.
My dh has a name that is also hard to spell. As a result we chose simple names for our children ... our dd is Emily and when she was 4 weeks old we went to a Paed and he wrote a referral for a test and hand wrote her name & spelt it 'Emiley' - you can't win!

My name is Jessica and I always have to spell it. I know a Jesika and a Jessikah so doesn't matter WHAT you pick she will always have to spell it. If you like it, go for it.

If you like the name, go for it!
My name is Asha and I'm always spelling it, but it doesn't bother me that much I still like my name

I'm constantly saying Krystal with a K & Y. I dont hate my name but I find it annoying. Was never a problem till I had kids & filling out a million & one things for doctors etc.

I find myself having to constantly say "it's Kerrie, with an IE".
It's frustrating the number of people that assume that it's with a y.
Having said that I love my name, I wouldn't change it(or it's spelling) for the world!
