I go by a number of names, depending on when and where I met a certain person.
Kristen, to my family and Manresa people.
Kei, to my elbi blocmates.
Keipots, to my elbi dormmates and the arnis team.
Keiichi/Keich, to Southville people.
And then there are the pet names.
Ten, to really close friends and family.
Tenny, to Vanny and Laila.
Kwisten, to Juay, Ria and Krishna.
Keipotchicus, to Drea and Oyotz.
Ketsi/Ketsilator, to Doi and the rest of the Alligators.
Unlike common names like Alex, Joy, and Michelle, my name is misspelled hundreds of times and sometimes it's a pain to correct people. Thing is, it's my identity, so I tend to be very particular with it.
Here are some of the more interesting spellings I've heard/seen.
Kristine (common mispronunciation)
Kitchie (I particularly dislike this one LOL)
Keiidri (Now how the hell did a "d" and an "r" get in there? Also, it sounds like "kadiri". LOL.)
Yeah. Maybe I should just change my name to Bob.
