The Wright spelling?

One of my memories of my grandmother, Bonnie (Lambertson) Wright was when we were on a trip in Chattanooga, Tennessee at Ruby Falls/Rock City.  At some point, my grandma was buying a ticket or something and the cashier asked her for her name.  When she said "Wright", the cashier asked her how she spelled it.  My grandma answered "W-R-I-G-H-T, how else would you spell it?"

Good thing grandma didn't look at these records in the FamilySearch collection of Massachusetts Revolutionary War muster rolls.  These are the variations for the Wright surname, including : Rite, Right, Writ, Write, Whright, and Waright, just to mention a few.
