Hello if anyone is listening. The name Ieniemienie is not spoused to be together it's two seprate words. In a calendar that i have it's spelled like this "Ienie Mienie." Now i don't know if that's just how it would be pronoced in the United States but that's how it is shown. Could someone help me on that? -- Kyle (talk) 03:27, 19 May 2007 (UTC)

I've never seen it spelled that way, and this article was started by a Dutch native. The calendar must be a mistake. β€”Scott (talk) 23:00, 19 May 2007 (UTC)
Well actually, there's both Het boek van Tommie, Pino en Ienie Mienie and Het boek van Ienie Mienie en haar vriendjes, so there is precedent for it. In fact the writeup for the first book says that "her name was spelled Ienie Mienie during her first appearances." The current spelling is to run them together, and that is how the Official Sesamstraat Site spells it. For the older stuff a [[Ieniemienie|Ienie Mienie]] tag can be used. -- Wendy (talk) 04:06, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
Wendy is right. The official website, the behind the scenes book, the Sesamstraat magazine and recent pieces of merchandise have her name spelled as one word, whereas her earlier appearances - the aforementioned books, which were produced right after her debut; and perhaps some of the earlier record albums as well - credit her as Ienie Mienie. My guess is that the fast pronounciation caused her name to become one word. -- Jogchem 10:32, 23 May 2007 (UTC)
