My mother just died. The Vital Statistics department seems to think that her name was “Patricia Colleen Briar”.
The issue: Her name was “Patricia Lavonne Briar”. After her divorce, she changed her surname to “Briar” and at the same time she changed her middle name to “Lavonne”. Vital Statistics apparently requires a legal document in order to correct the error that they might well have made. I can do without this.
On a related note, dictionaries have occasionally had entries for nonwords. For example, there is the story of “Dord” which you can read at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dord.
