HI Lynn, I really appreciated your article and the comments here. It inspired me to share a personal story of how spelling someone's name correctly can indicate greater attention to detail. When I was getting married last year, we had a new organizer at the location who kept spelling my name wrong. After politely including the correct spelling of my name on many communications and her seeming indifference to getting it right (as well as getting all the details of reception wrong too), I finally said: "My name is spelled with an "e" at the end. It would go a long way with me to demonstrate that you are attentive to detail if you would spell my name correctly." Turns out that she, too, was frustrated with people spelling/calling her by the wrong name and, after that conversation, every detail of the reception was spot-on. Details matter! Jenne (with an "e" since 1989!)
