Comments and insights on the name Tabatha

My name is Tabatha. I used to hate it when I was a kid. For one, with this particular spelling, everyone will assume its supposed to be spelled 'Tabitha' and so you'll have to spell it out all of the time. Secondly, basically everywhere you hear this name on tv or movies, they are a weird person, a witch, or something else that just seems to say "Hey, you have a weird person's name".
