* For nearly a decade fans had known him as "Punisher Martinez" but after getting regular Wrestling/RingOfHonor bookings in the 2010s he made a fairly significant effort to correct that to "Punish''ment''". Specifically he wants to be announced as "The Punishment Damian Martinez" but that's pretty hard to turn into a CrowdChant, or trending twitter topic. Given that he wrestled most of his career in the US, this is probably less a case of language problems and more him wearing a red eyed fanged skull shirt as entrance gear, which is slightly similar to the uniform of comic book character who ''is'' called Punisher.

* Discussed in the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fanfic ''[[https://www.fimfiction.net/story/72817/on-the-importance-of-spelling On The Importance Of Spelling]]''. Shining learns that he's been spelling his wife's name incorrectly. Cadance notes that since "Cadance" is a diminutive form of her 'real name' that the spelling isn't really that important. The two then get into a discussion on the different ways to spell Cadance's name. As it turns out, Shining Armor's legal name is "Shining Armour" but he doesn't use the "u".

** There's Prince Hans' AllThereInTheManual last name, Westerguard... except considering the fact that Jennifer Lee [[http://prince-hans-pants.tumblr.com/post/78090475682/we-now-have-official-confirmation-that-hanss-last never directly stated in her post]] how to spell it, it's been spelled as Westerguard, Westergard, and even Westergaard. Considering she didn't correct the poster who asked the question though, it can be assumed that Westerguard is meant to be correct.

** Occasionally, you'll find misspellings in television closed captions or other sources, like Crusty (the Clown) instead of Krusty (the Klown), Mo instead of Moe, or Willy instead of Willie. Moe's last name gets this too, though mainly because nobody can remember how to spell it (the actual spelling is Szyslak).
