    Cruhyze.
    See with that spelling I'm pronouncing it 'Cra-yooz' in my head.
    Or maybe 'Cra-hyze'?

    Cruhyze.
    I seriously just gasped out loud. That is so ridiculous, that poor child.

    Actually the more I look at that spelling, the more it looks like it says "crazy"!

    I thought maybe they'd been victims of an autocorrect and so I messaged back. No, they were very serious and somewhat annoyed they'd been asked to repeat it so many times.

    I think it's hilarious you asked if was an auto correct, that's gold! And what did they expect?? It's not just a slightly different spelling it's so off the wall no one could possibly know the spelling?

    Just took my son to tennis, there is a little girl named Pippet and a boy named Oryan (I hope there is no apostrophe in there!) in his class. I was so unimpressed when we realised how popular little man's name was/is but it sure is better than the alternative!

    Is that pronounced ori-an or more like o'ryan? If 'Ori-an', Ørjan (same pronunciation) is a traditional Scandinavian name. Might explain it?

    O'ryan, like the Irish surname. I thought the instructors may have got it wrong but his father pronounced it the same way.

    With that mangled spelling, I'd tell them to get used to it!
