Her mother could pronounce Porsche, she just couldn’t spell it.

Sort of like that Stevie Wonder song about Chev-Ro-Let.

It's sad, but I've seen illiteracy immotalized in children's names too many times to count.

My first wife's brother was named Charette. Her mother and father pronounced it, Troy-ette, and called him Troy for short. I kid you not.

Well yes, if she was naming her after a car. If she actually wanted the name she would correctly spell it, Portia.
