- An interesting story: Many have asked me why I spell my name differently in different places: Badii v. Badiei. When I was 15 I had set up most of my online nicknames and IDs and email addresses as Badii, how I like my family name to be spelled. But since Farsi script is different from latin I did not have an official family name written in latin until I got my passport and despite having clearly written how I wanted Badii to be spelled, the officials disagreed with me! So now I have my family name written differently in my passport and most of my online nicknames are spelled the way I want it, except the ones that have to be official.

That's nation states for you!  Some officer ... changed my name ... forever!
