That dreaded red squiggly line in Word is the bane of many people’s existence: mostly grammar Nazis, STEM students, professionals (quasiparticle is a real word, damn it!), and English teachers. But it’s a special kind of frustrating when the software’s spell checker refuses point blank to recognize your name as a correctly spelled series of letters. I mean, it’s your name, for crying out loud!

Your name can influence your career chances, and the following 15 names belong to people who made it big in their respective fields of music, film, TV, and sport.
