RePost: This Happens to Me | 16 Things Only People With Unique Names Will Understand

My name is L-E-S-L-E-Y. Did I ever tell you that? My name is Lesley.

I’ve received birthday cards from family and friends, email from colleagues and friends, and let’s not even get started on my surname. Either way, I have this huge pet peeve when writing something to spell someone’s name properly. (Or say someone’s name properly, ask them how, it opens doors!)

That said, this definitely gave me a chuckle…may name isn’t incredibly unique, but the spelling isn’t as accepted as Leslie, Lesli, Lessly, Lezli, you name it…but that said, it’d be great to have someone take the time….I can only imagine what it would be like to have someone foreign or completely unique….oh the turmoil for a small child at school!



People on Facebook continuously spell your name wrong even when it is listed mere inches from the comment box.
