When I chose the name Alkelda as my blogosphere user-name, I didn't anticipate the number of times it would be misspelled "Akelda." I should have-- my real name, Farida, has had variant spellings: Frida, Florida, Fareda,Vorida, Florinda, Farinda, and Fareakda are a few (though the last one is really a friend's play on the word "freak"). We shan't even delve into the mockery names such as Burrito, Fajita, Fifi, and "Far from the Ida"-- for some reason, that last one drove the eight-year-old me absolutely bezoomny.
I told Bede, "I'm about ready to give up correcting people. It's starting to get awkward and pedantic. Should I just change my blog-name to 'Akelda?'"
"No," Bede replied, as if I had proposed surrender to the Puppet-Masters. "Because then they will have won."
So, ALkelda it stays. If it helps you to remember, you can call me Al.
