In jail AND can't even spell his kid's name right... Your dad sounds like quite the fella!
I'm sure whoever did his tattoo for his was given specific instructions (by him) on what to write. He obviously must have told him the wrong spelling. And regardless of the fact that he is out of jail now, the fact that he was put in the slammer at all doesn't exactly personify him as a good person
67, that's one of the definitions of personify. Another definition is "to represent (an abstract quality or idea): This character personifies evil" or "to be the embodiment or perfect example of: "Stalin now personified bolshevism in the eyes of the world" (both definitions courtesy of Merriam-Webster). 36 was, however, using the word incorrectly. I believe the word he's looking for is "characterize".
Maybe it was the tattooer (?) that spelled it wrong? Hopefully.
People make mistakes, even when it comes to tattoos. Hell, I think I've even spelled my own name wrong once or twice. The good news is that it seems that OP's father has found faith and thus a reason to turn his life around and the realization of how much he loves his children, so much so that he haa permanently etched a token of his love for both his faith and his children on his chest. It's a terrible shame there was such a big screw up in the process though. :( Maybe he can get it fixed.
@93 Especially if the name is unusual or has multiple spellings/is an unusual spelling. My name's spelled Rachael, as much as I love it because it's so unique, I really wish people would stop spelling my name wrong. At least my parents remember how it's spelled, but then again it's just my two brothers and I not 13 of us.
