weird names

September 21st, 2005 (10:57 am)

Many people consistently spell Éiden's name wrong. I realize this is an unusual spelling and bear it with fortitude, as I bear with misspellings of my own name. And I've nearly given up on the accent mark (properly called a fada in Irish).

Two of the chronic offenders, though, are most baffling: my friend Oriane, who you think would pay attention to these things especially with a name like that; and my mother, who is not only his grandmother for god's sake but went and named her daughters Haddayr, Alaunde, Noedahn, and Djuna.

My father, grandmother, and great grandmother all spelled my first name wrong for years. I have also seen them spell my sister Katie's name wrong, so I choose to believe it is a genetic bullet that I managed to dodge. :)
