I really dislike it when people misspell my name.
In my mind, if I were famous, people would actually remember how to spell my name. In reality, I fear it would just up the amount of people trying to spell my name and failing.
For some reason, J-O-D-E-E is really difficult for people. I cannot count the amount of times that I've spelled my name aloud to someone only to find they have transcribed it as Joddee. Or the amount of times that I have sent an email wherein I sign my name, spelled correctly, from my email address that is comprised of my name... spelled correctly, only to get an email back that says, "Thanks Jodie, I would love a sack full of magenta hamster ornaments." Well, fuck you, name misspeller! No hamsters for you!
I try not be an asshole about it. I know my mom spelled my name weird. I don't mind people assuming it isn't spelled in a ridiculous way before I tell them the spelling is different than almost every other Jody in the world... but once they see it is, I want them to remember it is not normal-spelled.
Now, why did my mom choose to spell my name dumb? Well, it is either part of the experiment OR it is because it is a literal amalgamation of the two people I am named after: my grandpa, Jo, and my godmother, Dee. I can only be thankful that my grandpa's name was not Bob.
