For example I'm called Zoe & I hate any variation of the name such as Zooey,
Zoie, Zoey, Zowie etc... I just think why change something thats nice,
pretty and simple the way it is?

ANyway what name variations do you
hate?

Well, my name is Meghan and people always spell it Megan. I suppose my name is one of those weird spelling variations, but I also hate:
Meagan
Meaghan
Meagann
Meaghann
Meaghane
Meaghane
Meaghanne
Meaganne

Etc, etc. It drives me crazy!

I don't like it when a name is supposed to start with a certain letter, and then someone changes it to a different letter. For instance they might change Cole into Kole, Amelia into Emelia or Olivia into Alivia. :)

I also don't care for these spellings: Lindsay, Braden/Haden, Eliot, Emoly....and I can't stand when a name has extra y's in it like: Ayden or Ryley! (It bothers me SO much!)
Another thing I don't really like, is when people change the 'ley' part of a name to 'leigh'. For instance: Bayleigh, Ashleigh or Kayleigh. ;)

Those are a few of the spellings that I don't like...and BTW, I understand why those other spellings would get annoying to you Zoe, Brittany and Meghan! My name is Catelin and I have gotten so many different spellings over the years that I've given up on people spelling my name right. Since I don't really care for my name anyway, it's okay. However, Catie I do like! :P

Thanks for the interesting topic!

hehe ash :) my cousin is Ashleigh, in my class at school i had an Ashley (boy) Ashlea(girl) Ashlee(girl) Ashalea(girl) and in the other class was an Ashly (boy) and Ashalee(girl) it was so confusing as a 9 yr old. they ended up in my class keeping Ashley(boy) Ashlee(g) ashlea(g) and the other ashalea's mum said it was ok to call her by middle name which was good so she became Courtney! 1987-2000 was the time of the Ash/leigh/lee/ley/lea's!

Haha it is quite popular!
An I happened to be another mid 90's child stuck with the name. :)
That must have been sooo confusing though! & I thought having an Ashleigh, Ashley, Ashley & Ashlee in my school was confusing.

I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and siblings (well, not all of them :P ). I listen to music almost all the time and write my own music every once in a while. <br /><br />Lastly: I would definitely rather be outdoors than in.

I dislike spellings with any extra letters that are unnecessary. For example, Katelynn. I can't think of any more at the moment but the double n bothers me.

My name is Nicki, and I hate alternate spellings such as:

Nikki
Niki
Nicky
Nickie
Nikkie
Nikky

You get the idea... the one that is the most common is Nikki and it bugs me so much.

I just realised that I really hate the spelling Corrine! I really like the name Corinne, and to me those 2 have a slightly different pronouncations, but English mothertongues would pronounce it the same way:

Corinne ~~~ co-RIN :)
Corrine ~~~ COR-rin
and it i snot co-REEN, I hate that pronouncation of Corinne because it isn't acurat!!! The spelling to that pronouncation would be Coreen or Corene, but not Corinne!
That is just the way I see it or pronounce those names. English sometimes is a confusing language :)
