Auto correct names

This weekend I was working the registration table at a school function. I actually did a double take when I saw one of the participant's name: Entrees. I thought, "Really?! Mom must have been hungry!" but made her nametag as written. She appeared and said, "Oh! My name is misspelled." Her name is really E$tree$, rhymes with Denise. Much prettier than Entrees, don't you think? I assume that her phone "corrected" the spelling of her name when she registered.

So here's the game: hit me with your auto-corrected names, real or imaginary.

I had a student named Deivion, and my assessment app always changed it to "friction."

DD's name autocorrects to Evil instead of Ev!e.
