My name is Laurel. Yes, my name is a little bit different, somewhat uncommon… and I love it. One small problem, though, is that my name is enough like other, more familiar names – Laura, Laurie, Lauren – that it’s often mistaken, misspelled, and sometimes even completely mangled. You might be surprised at just how many different ways you can spell some approximation of Laurel, but this week’s visit to Starbucks gave me an entirely new variation to add to my collection.
Lauriel. And this is the way he wrote it as I was spelling it out for him. Really, Mr. Barista?!
I think from now on I’m just going to make them guess how to spell it. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
