Have a common name no one can spell or a unique name no one can pronounce?

Would you rather have a common name that has so many extra letters and silent M's, R's and Y's that no one can spell it or a unique name with that is SO unique that no one can pronounce it?

LOL...I think I would rather have a name people can say but can't spell

P.S...legally changing your name is not an option

  • I have a unique name that no one pronounces or spells right the first time, and i would much rather have that, than a name that looks like my hand slapped a keyboard and i decided it sounded like "this" common name...

  • I'd go with option B.
    Option A would make it seem like my parents were morons :-)
