* An even more bizarre example would be the British regiment known as "The Artists Rifles", they were originally called "The Artist's Rifles", but after various army clerks [[WantonCrueltyToTheCommonComma couldn't figure out where the apostrophe went]], they eventually dropped it altogether (as if that was less confusing). The whole thing was resolved after WorldWarTwo, when the regiment was redesignated the 21st Territorial Special Air Service Regiment.

* Invoked with Creator/JohnScalzi's cat [[http://whatever.scalzi.com/2015/01/25/ghlaghghee-2003-2015/ Ghlaghghee]] -- he wanted a creative name for their new kitten, his then four year old daughter insisted on calling the kitten "Fluffy". Remember George Bernard Shaw's comment about English pronunciations being so nonsensical that "ghoti" could validly be pronounced "fish"? So did Scalzi.

* ''Literature/TheThrawnTrilogy'' from the ''Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse'' gives us the evil clones [[EvilMentor Joruus C'baoth]] and [[EvilKnockoff Luuke Skywalker]] (cloned from Jedi Master [[Literature/OutboundFlight Jorus C'baoth]] and Luke Skywalker, respectively). Although the spelling of these names is not called into question (because the characters never had to spell them), the "telltale mispronunciation" was mentioned as a sign that these were indeed clones. Since this is TimothyZahn we're talking about, there's a pun involved too: It's not just a mispronunciation; since both clones characters have the letter U in their names, the clone is ''Another U''. (One wonders what C'baoth would've named the clone of Mara Jade he intended to create. "Maura"? "Maara"?)
