Well, not really misspelt it, just using another variation of it such as Elisabeth/Elizabeth or Susanna/Susannah, Margo/Margot, Mae/May?

Not really, it can be fairly easily done if it's an unusual name. Can be tiresome to keep correcting people though, so I take the liberty of spelling it for them as soon as I say it.

People misspell and mispronounce it daily. If I got annoyed I would always be!

Yes, people always spell my name with a C instead of a K, so I always have to say Katherine with a K

Assuming they can read, how could they misspell your name on an email?! But if they do, I wouldn't correct them for fear of looking pedantic

No, it would take a mentally deficient person to spell my name wrong so I obviously wouldn't be annoyed by it.

Well, some people have already ingrained within them on how a certain name is spelt.

Hello Natalia, I think I know someone called Natalia who used to go my primary school and sometimes I see her when I come back home. Same thing happened to her as well..

Yours isn't as bad though..
My name has like 5 variations...

Nah it doesn't really annoy me, I found it funny once when I called to make an appointment for something then while I was there I saw she'd spelled my name as 'Alissabeth', only time I've seen anyone spell Elizabeth that way :lol:

No. My name's Sofia and people tend to spell it as Sophia. I'm called Sophie all the time.
