How do you Spell Your Name?
So just how do you spell your name? I suppose if you have the surname Ferdinand or Ferdinando you are used to some of the amazing spellings and pronunciations of your name. It is actually phonetic and can easily be spelt out in parts but this does not stop some truly amazing attempts especially when telesales people phone up! My favourite arrived this year with a card addressed to Mrs Ferdimango.
I thought I would note down some of the most common, and some of the most bizarre spellings so that we could all have a laugh and gawp at the endless possibilities thrown up in written and spoken attempts at spelling Ferdinand or Ferdinando. If there are any you would like to send me new ones then please do e-mail them to me.
