...but not everyone agrees on the correct spelling.

When someone that can't spell my name tells me that my name is spelled wrong. #GrowingUpWithMyName

Spelling has torn families apart...

when certain members of ur family can't even spell ur name right #GrowingUpWithMyName

...and ruined coffee everywhere.

@Starbucks Hey, what's the crack? I thought my name was pretty easy to spell... #starbucksproblems
