ll my life I've had people doing me favors...namely sticking an extra D on my name. I'm certain these people mean well. They probably think they're fixing a mistake. Admittedly, Todd with two D's is the more common spelling. And nobody is saying that the spelling of names has to make sense. Ann has two N's. Scott has two T's. Cliff has two F's.

Yet I can't help but wonder when these well-meaning orthographers add a second D from a document in my own handwriting or email, what are they thinking? Do they doubt my ability to spell my own name? Is there any conscious thought involved or is it more of an instinctual reaction?

This site is dedicated to not only those one-D Tods of the world. It's dedicated to anyone who lives with the daily frustrations of having their names spelled wrong. It's dedicated to the Catherines, the Chrises, and the Johns. It's dedicated to anyone who has an uncommon spelling of a common name. You can overcome. You can endure. And for heavensake, there's nothing wrong with being unique!
