what's in a name

In the plethora of paperwork (say that ten times fast) we've received lately, we have seen an incredible amount of typos and errors in documents put together by so-called "professionals". I don't mean spelling errors, I mean things like getting our post code wrong and most frequently, getting my surname wrong. The most interesting variation of my last name appeared on a fax from the company doing our house survey. Apparently, I am called Lisa MacCloud. Not MacLeod or even McLeod (as one would normally expect), but MacCloud. Although containing some of the same letters as my actual surname (MacDonald), this has got to be the most creative mispelling of my name to date. Kudos to you, Connells!
