Mye name is Lynne.
Withe an 'e.'
Write it downe.
How difficult is it to use an 'e' at the end of my name in order to spell it correctly?
Maybe my sensitivity to this mistake is because I grew up next to the town of Lynn, Massachusetts which is not a very nice place except near the ocean and then, only when the wind blows just right so it doesn’t smell like raw sewage. But the hair across my ass (admittedly vulgar, yet colorful New England expression meaning the state of being irascible, irritable, annoyed – notably not found here) often comes from those who have seen my name in writing—my writing—in which it is invariably spelled correctly, yet, somehow manage to respell it incorrectly. What’s up with that?
Because the terminal 'e' in my name is silent but does not have the power of Silent 'E', it doesn’t seem to carry any weight at all. And although, in my experience, my name can sound like a grunt, a bark, and many other random single syllable sounds, I maintain that it has a pretty written structure:
In order to defend that tag of my identity, I have been known to sign my emails, LynnE, but even that ugly modification doesn’t seem to be enough.
What’s it going to take to get people to spell my name with an 'e' at the end?
That’s all for today. Thanks for listening.
