    Not sure this thread will take off, but we get some fucked up spelling of names in local wrap-up/round-up/agate.

    I'll start with a couple from today:

    Ethyn
    Maddelyn

    Drives me nuts.

    Have seen no one named Rinse or Repeat. Learn something new every day.

    Rinse and Repeat are twins on the high school softball team.

    EDIT: As for spelling 'Brtny' without an 'i,' how long before parents start spelling their kids' names in text speak?
