Tombstones

I have always listed the name as it is written on the tombstone. The one that always gets to my relatives is "Elanor" when in every other location it is a Eleanor or Elenore. No one seems to mind the other variations, but somehow they don't believe that it could possibly be Elanor - despite the photo I have on Ancestry of her headstone which is located next to her daughter's and husband's graves. She died first, so they purchased the headstone. Funny how riled up people can get about spelling. When I correct my student's spelling, their response is "Whatever."
Interesting side note: When I checked the box to "check spelling" during the preview of this post, I received 66 suggestions for what I meant insted of my name!
