Personal experiences with the name Sheryl: | Edit

My husband's name is Sheyrl. I think his birth certificate was written Sheyrl and then the yr was crossed out and replaced with ry but he always spelled it Sheyrl. Does anyone know any males who spell their name that way? I've come across some Sherrills but none spelled Sheyrl or Sheryl.
