"I like my name. I think it's pretty. Now get this, I have a twin and her name is Gwynne." Jan. 24, 2020:
"Most people spell my name wrong, it winds me up if someone replies ?Hi Lynn? to a work email which clearly shows in my email signature how to spell my name. It simply serves to highlight their ignorance and confirms that they are not deserving of my attention." Jan. 20, 2020:
"Misspelled 99% of the time - people will leave off the "e" at the end. I'm told that Lynne is the French feminine form of the name - Lynn is a
boy name..." May. 13, 2008:

"When I was growing up, I never met another Lynne. People always spelled my name wrong, or/and called me "Linda." I used to hate my name. I like it now, actually. I have met a few Lynnes-- not many, but they're out there! I used to think it sounded weak. Now, I think it sounds soft, gentle, and feminine." Nov. 21, 2019:
"Never does anyone sell my name correctly unless they are also a Lynne! Damn" Mar. 2, 2019:
"I have had friends who have misspelled my name, "Lynne," for decades, even though they see my name on letters, e-mails, etc. I have learned to live with the misspellings, just correcting them if the occasion arises. I do prefer the 'e' on the end, because when I was young, many boys also had this name." May. 7, 2008:
"I have finally learned to love my name "Lynne".Even though most people get it wrong and call "Glyn "or for some reason usume it is short for Lynnette.I am still to meet the person who spells it correctly first time , But most people think it's a nice name and the extra "e" makes it that much interesting.Yes I finally love my little name even though I still can't find a keyring with my name printed on it." Nov. 16, 2006:
"I've learned to love the extra "e" on my name, but it does get spelled wrong all the time. To date, I have found one item with my name printed on it and had one person (other than my parents of course) who said "that is such a pretty name"" Jul. 9, 2005:
"I like the way my name is spelled but I never could find a cup or name plate with my name on it. No one ever said "oh, that is such a pretty name"" May. 25, 2005:
