Keira Knightley says her mum's crap at spelling that whys she has a unique name

Keira Knightley's unique name was an accident? 

The Imitation Game actress, who graces the March cover of Elle U.K., said her mother screwed up when it came time to register her new baby girl. 

"I was meant to be named 'Kiera,' after a Russian ice skater who was on the TV one day," she told the magazine. 

"My dad fancied her and nicked her name for me. But it was my mum who went to register my birth, and she accidentally spelled 'ei' instead of 'ie' because my mum's crap at spelling.

What would you do if you found out your mum spelt your name wrongly on your birth certificate?
