Yes, my name is Graig, it sounds like one of the above only spelled like the other. Why is that so hard for people. I had a teacher in grade school who would circle my name in red pen with an “SP” beside it in my journal we were keeping for class. When I went up and asked him about it, he told me I was spelling my name wrong.
People often verbally call me Craig. I stopped noticing this sometime around high school. Others started correcting people for me, which was awfully nice of them, but truly I just don’t hear it most of the time anymore.
When I give my name verbally, people with write it “Greg”, but if I give them some identification they’ll correct it to “Craig” when they input or re-write it. How insensitive. That’s my cross, I must bear it.
I’ve never personally me another “Graig”, but I know people who have, or have met people with relatives spelled that way, which makes me feel a little less alone in the world somehow.
