On a serious note, when you think of a name, consider how many ways it could be spelt and how tedious it could get telling people:
"Is that F-L-I..?"
Trust me, I live with this kind of thing. I have, in the words of Daphne du Maurier, a 'lovely and unusual name', but if I had a pound for every time I'd had to spell it...
This is true! I don't even have an unusual name, just one with lots of spelling variations. There are at least four places in my name with the potential for spelling mistakes, which leads to getting lost on databases, people sending emails to a misspellt address etc. a lot.
