How do you spell your name?

December 12, 2008

“What’s your name? ” …  “How do you spell that?”

Have you heard this countless times on the phone? Then you’re left spelling out your name slowly, hoping the person on the other line doesn’t mistake B for E, N for M, and so forth. So now your left with spelling it out with common words. B as in boy, R as in Robert, I as in igloo, etc…

Well, I’ve grown bored of the usual A as in apple, B as in boy, … etc or even NATO’s Phonic Alphabet, A as in alpha, B as in bravo, etc. I want a better way to spell out my name on the phone. Something that will be uplifting to me and to the person on the other end of the phone. I did some searching on the internet and came across this wonderful site with lists exactly what I was looking for. Key of Wealth‘s contributor, Dr. Maria Moratto, came up with a list of joyous words to use when spelling your name.

    Mine is J as in Just-how-it-sounds.

    Then again I’ve never really been the ‘uplifting’ type. 🙂

    Mine is C as in Can-you-hear-me?

    I actually like using the NATO phonic abc’s. If I forget one, I make one up looking at random objects in the room.
    “Whiskey, Tango, umm Futon.” 🙂
