Mathias, with one “t” (and “h”)
Btw: There are several spellings for the name my parents gave me, and I've got this variant:
Mathias with one “t” (and “h”)
I don't know why my parents have choosen this variant. People really seem to have problems with it. Every time someone writes it down, I have to explain the spelling: “Oh, just one 't', please” - “But with an 'h'?” - “Yes, with 'h'.” Nevertheless really I prefer my spelling. It looks much better to me, than Matthias or Mattias. Maybe I just prefer being Matze, instead of Matt. Don't know.
PS: Just learned, that “Matze” is the Yiddish name for some kind of Jewish bred, btw. Ok, would have to add some accent sign to get their pronounciation: “Mátze”. Wow. Incredible, what you learn by ranting.
PPS: Well, and I really hesitated to write this, but guess it has to be done - before I entirely loose my given name.
