Subject: RE: BS: great Teresa's I have known
When I helped my sister selling name badges in NZ (she carried 800 names including many alternative spellings like Matthew, Mathew, Matt etc) and one lady opined we wouldn't have Siobhan - so I got the appropriate badge and said "There you are" - she said no it is spelled "Shivaun" so I pointed out we had the correct Irish spelling, and she said "The priest did say something at the christening, but no the badge is the wrong spelling" !
