      Exactly,

      VIrtually all English names of the type end in "ley", so everybody wants to
      spell Gergely as Gergley. Particularly down her in the WASP South.

      Had no trouble in Budapest though. Of course all of my relatrives still in
      Slovakia use Gergel'.

      Oh, you mean Gergley:-)
      If you would add an "s", then they would take you for a Greek.

      Hey, try having a name with the "ely" ending in America. It always ends up
      spelled with "ley" as all the English names - Bradley, Connely, etc.

      Today, for the fist time in my life, I ordered "Classic Love Songs from
      the
      50 ties" collection for my wife's birthday. I made it on the phone.
      I spelled my name in several ways ( the guy was czech), also like Bertha
      Otto Heinrich Ida Nordpol Caesar , as it is usual with german speaking
      countries. So he got is written down right. After a short chat he then
      said:" Ok, Mr.Bohnic, thank you very much for your order."
      See, what is chasing me?:-)
