Hello Allan, |
You might think that a short name like CRAM would be easy to spell… but I get asked for the spelling a lot. I don’t take offense… far from it - I feel reassured when receptionists and other people take the time to ask how my name is spelled, to make sure they get it correct. I’ve heard of people having the wrong operation just because there was a mix-up with names.
Forenames and surnames alike have so many different spellings that I can’t help but ask the bearers of those names - when it’s necessary, ‘How do you spell that, please?’
