Is It Me or Is Dwyane Wade’s Name Spelled Wrong?

Dwyane Wade Name Spelled WrongEvery time I am writing an article about Dwyane Wade, I always have to change the way he first name is spelled. I am used to Dwayne, but for some reason his y comes before the a.

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.
