People seem to have issues with names ending in "-el" vs "-le"

Hi! I’m a magical teenage princess from the faraway planet Asteria.
Understandable, I guess, since they pretty much both represent the same sound, at least in my dialect.

I live on a street with a name ending in "-el". I initially got annoyed when I saw people writing it "-le", but then I remembered that this mistake is common enough I've actually had to correct the city's traffic sign department when they fucked up the spelling of a different "-el" street:




(And if you're thinking "but what if 'Chaple' is a weird proper name?", I know "Chapel" is the correct spelling because it was used on the signs posted when the street first opened in the late '90s.)

    Fortunately we don't have that problem here. We however have the problem with different letters encoding the same sound. May get confusing in personal names.
