"I'm 14. My name is spelled differently as "Gryffen". I like it a lot. I haven't been teased that much (except for the "Griffyndor" reference from Harry Potter.) A lot of people like my name, especially the spelling but I can imagine that a lot of people might also think it looks silly and might feel sorry for me. Despite that, I love being Gryffen."
