    Hey all

    My IPad 2 keeps autocorrecting the spelling of my name incorrectly and a few times I have missed it and created all sorts of confusion (what it is being changed to is nowhere near my real name).

    Does anyone know how I can either add my correct name spelling to the dictionary so I doesn't try to auto correct, or to address this another way as it's really frustrating.

    Thanks for your help

    A Member noticed that the auto correct doesn't correct names or words that are in the Contacts app. So he suggested - and it works just great - put words/names/technical terms as 'spoof' entries in the Contacts database and then the iPad won't correct them. A clever workaround!!
