I have the Hybridic edition. I was taught mine is a similar related variant but is not the'same name because mine is pronouncable as spelled in the experience I have had in common society because some use it that way. In text Key mine reads as Stephen pronounced: STEEV-ən/STeF-ən. It's spellable as STEVEN,Stephan, Stefan, or Steffen.

Steven is my name. I too really don't like to be called Steve, but I never had any nicknames like Stevie. It was always Steven. My grandmother insisted that my name was spelled with the "ph" and because she was so set in her ways, we "allowed" her to sign my name on cards and such spelled like that.
