"In the sixth grade I got sent to the Principals office because I lied about the spelling of my name. My mom had to call the teacher and tell her that was how it was spelled. You would think that by the 6th grade a child can spell his own name." Mar. 23, 2010:
"While phonetically Mikel makes more sense than Michael, my name was always mispronounced as a child - the most common pronunciation was "Mick-el". While I go by Mike now, I still quite like the spelling of my name as it's definitely unique." Sep. 5, 2006:
