    I'm doing a bit of email catchup . . .

    Over time I've had no problem causing headaches for HR and company 
email systems by having a last name of MacIan . . . Emm Aye Cee Capital 
Eye Aye Enn.  No, that's not MACE-ee-an, it's mack-EE-an.  No, I'm not 
the senior US senator from Arizona.  Yes, while I tinker about with 
computers, no, my last name is not mack-Lan either.  That letter in the 
middle is Not a lower case ell, where if you are seeing and then 
transcribing an ell, then you clearly have one of those inferior fonts 
that does not include serifs.

    And then of course, when discussing names, one Must got to

"I didn’t have this much trouble naming my first three kids either~~they 
are: Michelle Kaye, Kathleen Cierra, and Abbey Julieanna. What do you 
think of Kaylyn Arriana? Also, do you like the spelling Kaylan or Kaylyn 

Observe the evolution from sanity to madness. First the middle names are 
spelled funny, then are odd names spelled funny, then creeping into 
strangely spelled but normal first names, then all hell breaks loose."
