"I know people with both spellings. Seriously, what's wrong if someone is being different with spelling?! It's done all the time! Example: you can spell Hillary all different ways. Hillary; Hilary; Hilarie and Hillerie. So many different ways but, same meaning. Means: Hilaria, Latin for cheerfulness! So maybe people shouldn't get so upset about "misspelling" maybe they knew! Anyways, who cares, it's their child, not yours..." Mar. 6, 2013:
