Misspelled names are one of the most common corrections I have to make at the OBSERVER. Sometimes they result from typographical errors, hearing a name incorrectly or not realizing there is an alternate spelling; many times names are submitted incorrectly. Some regular contributors misspell the same names again and again. Because the name is recognizable to staff, the same correction is made over and over. In that case, it luckily gets into the paper spelled correctly.
