Does the name "Mathew" with one t exist?

A Mathew I know told me it's been misspelled by the person who registered his birth certificate.

I spell my name with one t, but it’s technically incorrect. If you sound it out, the extra t is required. It’s pronounced Mat-thew, not Mat-hew. When my mother was registering me with the authorities the clerk said the second T was superfluous, and she just agreed.

That clerk needed more schooling.

I am allowed to make mistakes because English is not my native language.
