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

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.)
