View Full Version : Seriously...how many different ways are there to spell "Johnny"?

Okay okay... there are variations, I give you that. But I swear I have people suggesting stuff that they're just making up on the spot when they try to spell my name.

"Let's see... that's J-H-O-N-I-E right?"

No! It's not right! Not even close! How did you even let such an abberation come out of your mouth? Do other relatively common names get butchered so routinely?

At first I tried to be cool about it and just thought, "well, of course it's obvious to me how it should be spelled. It's my name."

But then I thought about it some more... and damn near every famous dude named Johnny to ever live shares the same spelling. Depp, Carson, Cash, Tremain, Unitas, Bench, "Guitar" Watson... ALL of those cats spelled it the way it SHOULD be spelled, damn it.

So I declare my patience with this issue officially exhausted. Get it right people!

Rubber, or Rhys-Meyers?

Believe it or not, I saw these guys in concert back in 1979 (I think) at the UNCG auditorium. Strange, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Well, if you take the 'J' sound from the 'G' in giraffe...
and the 'ohn' sound from the 'an' in wand...
and 'knee' for the 'ny',

I suppose you could go with:

I blink every time I see the name of Cleveland Indian Jhonny Peralta. Ow.

I'm sure there are some who go by Johnnie, but can't recall. (eta: of course! Johnnie Cochran!)

It's a funny world.
