Is it Maureen Whitman? Wittman? Whatman?

People have a hard time spelling my last name. Once, when Rob was quoted in our local newspaper, our last name was spelled three different ways in one article, Whitman, Witmann, Whittman.

The original cover art for A Catholic Homeschool Treasury had my name spelled wrong: Maureen Wittman. Fortunately, it was caught in time.

Here's how you remember the spelling: it's the opposite of Walt's last name. No h, 2 t's, and 2 n's. Wittmann.

Think that's bad? Try "Aquilina"! Heck, I can barely spell my last name.

You mean it's not Acqualeena?

As one of those who misspelled your name Maureen, I can honestly tell you, it will never happen again. It is now ingrained in my brain ;-)

LOL, not to worry Esther, you're one in a large club.

Now that I've posted this, all the people who google "Maureen Whitman" will be able to find me :-).
