The Reason Why Starbucks Always Spells Your Name Wrong

There are many secrets behind the world famous coffee chain. From the secret drink menu, to being able to get yourself a coffee for free. But there is one thing about Starbucks that’s always confused customers. And that’s how every Starbucks employee can completely and utterly screw up with the spelling of your name.

Trying to find a barista at Starbucks who can spell your name properly is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. It seems almost impossible!


While Starbucks don’t exclusively hire people who can’t spell other people’s names, it’s not exactly a coincidence.

According to a latest conspiracy, Starbucks employees are encouraged to incorrectly spell people’s names, in hopes that they’ll post the silly mistake on social media. It’s a quick and easy way to get free advertising!

So, when you post a picture of your yummy Starbucks drink online, with your name spelt in a way that’s utterly ridiculous, you’re actually doing them a favour.


So the next time you’re names being murdered on the famous red cups Starbucks use around about Christmas time, remember, by taking a photo and posting it on social media, you’re actually doing them a favour.

In celebration of Starbuck’s employee’s poor spelling, here are 4 Starbucks cups that have names incorrectly spelt.
