Tabitha?  
Lady at Starbucks looked at "Tapatea" and pronounced "Tabitha" and wondered why no one came to claim it.

I should start giving my last name for those things, especially since I'm tired of trying to spell my name for people to jot down quickly--they always murder it.

Dang, that's a stretch! People kill me.

I kid you not, people look at my name: "Holly" and say "holy? holy?" all the time! I think most people are only barely literate ;)

LOL, I suspect you're right.

When I spell my name, people call me Marie or Maury or Murry or worse. At least when I say Mary they get it right. Usually. When Preston and I are together, I just give his name. ;)

I do the same when I'm with Dave. I mean, why bother?

If we're somewhere that needs a last name for some reason, sometimes preston will give them mine because it's saner. :)
