Welcome to Gaia! ::

OKay this hit me while i was browsing the forums... Why cant people spell the names of the Walking Dead characters correctly....


Its Merle, not meryl or merl...
Its Daryl....not Derrel or Daryll
Its Carol
Its Carl
Its Shane
its Rick
its Lori
its Beth
its Hershel
its Maggie,,,not Maggy or Maggi (look it up in the comics its spellt Maggie)
Its Judith
Its Phillip


and the list goes on...so why cant people get it right? I've heard people call Merle Maryl...... *cough* the creator of the new walking dead survival instinct game.... I mean seriously do they not pay attention to Robert Kirkman or the show for that matter? It urkes me to know this.

I remember everyones name but merle's.
Mostly cause his brother's name is spelled Daryl and I start to think Meryl.

EDIT: Btw the governor's name is Brian, not Philip.
I've never seen "Derrel", but I see "Darly" a lot... yup, Darly.

Actually I believe in the comic the Gov' was actually Brian? I dunno but that's what someone said.


People are people. At least you know who they're talking about : |.

It's not like someone is saying Carl when they mean Carol or vice versa.

or they forget not everyone is perfect when it comes to spelling i myself suck at spelling you just have to deal with it and not care about it
people learn to speel! haha
I'm not annoyed by it at all. I don't spell their names wrong, but you shouldn't be irritated by it, it could of been keyboard problems, slow PC, or just noob talk. But if you got what they meant, that's all that matters.

Why are you? Because it shows that they aren't that dedicated to remember how to spell their names?

Phillip was brian's (the governor) brother.
Penny is Phillip's daughter and Brian's (the governor) niece.
Brian took his brother's name

I know, I *headdesk* every time I see it. Don't know why they do it, maybe they're too lazy to look it up or something.
