My name ends with a 'c', while in the country I live in it is much more often spelled with a 'k' at the end. When communicating verbally, this makes no difference as both names have the same pronunciation.
However, when communicating via e-mail, SMS, chat or other means of written communication, I often find people misspelling my name as they're used to the more common variant. I have tried to address this passively, e.g. by including my name in an email signature or in my online profiles. I haven't tried explicitly correcting people. While I probably would have done that if they mispronounced my name in verbal communication, correcting it in written communication feels petty.
While it is a minor detail, I want my name to be spelt correctly. Spelling it this way comes from the family and I want to keep that part.
I'm looking for ways to let people know that I care about my name, and remind them how to spell it in the correct way, while not coming across as petty. How can I do that?
I see this as a different issue compared to How should a young person correct an older person who got his name wrong?, as that deals with getting the wrong name, in-person.
