Actually, Eddy, I realized it was a joke, but I didn't want Mikayla to feel bad.

You have a point. My cousin recently named her child Ysabella. Yes, with a Y, not an I. Craziness.

I think you have missed what was obviously a bad joke of mine. If you look at my post I was referring to Quentin's comment about "dyslexic" typing and the word society gives to such an impediment "dyslexia". When you have to explain, it doesn't look that funny to me either.
I, too, missed it the first time but (with the explanation) I find it very funny. To misapply a quote from Shakespeare, "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves".

Society doesn't name people, parents do. I have a name which is constantly misspelled, but at least it's not a "generic" name like Mary or Anna. Mikayla is a very pretty name, in my opinion. Hata'a!

Nice job on the name. You weren't kidding about the dyslexic typing were you?

What sort of society gives a person who can´t spell, a name that 99% of the population can´t spell.

Mikayla, it would be a good idea, while you're here, to be a little more careful with your English.

I am trying to understand Spanish. Can anyone help?
I need to understand more Spanish. Most of the kids at school speak Spanish. I need a little help; can any of you help me'

Amber's response has a lot of mistakes in it, most of which Quentin has corrected for you. Also:

Tengo trece años (de edad). - I am thirteen years old.
Me llamo Mikayla. - My name is Mikayla.

It would be a good start to get some spanish books for beginners, Berlitz essential spanish for beginners is excellent it gives you dialogues and shows you underneath the way to pronounce these.

Oops! ignore my comment about tía not having an accent mark. It does. I looked up tia in the dictionary, but it was the wrong word. La tía es la esposa de su tío. Tia without the accent is something else.

Mikayla,

Are you aware that your personal page says that your native language is Spanish? You might want to change that to English.
