The spelling always bothered me and I found my answer in an interview Wade did with Esquire magazine back in 2010.
When asked about his name, Wade stated
“I’m a junior — I got that name from my father. I asked him — my grandma said that’s how she felt it was spelled. There you go.”
Well, I got my answer and now that it is burned into my subconscious, I will never spell
Dwayne’s name wrong again.
