Starting new job, I’m worrying over this mistake

Basically I’ve just got a new job, not started it yet but the managers been emailing me advice on how to prepare etc, she seems ok.

I replied in an email thanking her and said I’d be sure to look up the topics she suggested. I then realised I’d spelt her name wrong, just the last letter I’d put as a ‘y’ when it should have been ‘I’

I’d already sent the email and sent another email about 10 mins after apologising that I’d spelt her name wrong.

I now feel stupid and am worrying that I’ve made a deal out of nothing or that she’ll think I’m too formal/ a ass licker or something. As it was only 1 letter I’d made a mistake with.

Have I gone a bit over the top or am I worrying too much

The fact that you've sent a follow up message shows that you do know how to spell her name and that it was just a typo / easy mistake.

Try not to worry about it.

It’s ok, people always spell my name wrong even though it’s written right there, including my classmates and teacher who’s known me long enough. It would reflect well that you corrected it. If their name is unique in being spelled with an ‘I’ instead of y then it’s even less your fault

It's fine. It happens don't worry too much about it.
You've sent two emails that's it. Crack on with your day job now. Mine is misspelt often and I never get an apology email. Atleast this situation will stick by you and you'll hopefully write her name correctly.
