Spell Check, Please! The Most Hilariously Misspelled Names on Starbucks Cups

No first name is simple enough to escape baristas' wildly interpretive black pens

You know the drill: You go into Starbucks, order your morning caffeine fix, give your name -- and a few minutes later retrieve from the counter a cup messily scrawled with some version of it that's so off-base, it somehow feels like a raging insult. (Oh no you di'int, barista!) Well, take comfort in knowing it happens to the best of us -- even if our names are Jen or Annie.

So universal is the problem that there's a whole blog devoted to the misspellings. Check out some of the most hilariously outrageous offenses on the Starbucks Spelling Tumblr:
