What’s in a Name

My dad named me…Anne Gay.  All is good then started in school and the battle of Ann or Annie began.  I would always point out to the teacher – “It’s Annie.”  Since school though, I just take it as it comes.  If called Ann or Annie…I don’t care.  I let it go.  Recently it was brought to my attention by a friend.  I think they thought my Dad just misspelled my name.  No – that isn’t the case.

My dad says he spelled it right.  He was a great speller so I believe him.  I think it has more to do with cultures, ethnicity, etc.

Also, found this…

If anyone ever says…your parents spelled your name wrong, look it up – 9 times out of 10 it is a cultural/language issue.
