Apparently names are meaningless and artificial conventions if you believe online sign-up forms. Tonight I filled out a form on NPR and when I tried to submit it, I received the response which basically stated "First name is invalid. Please enter a valid first name." I made the educated guess that it was because there is a space in between "Lee" and "Ann" so I fixed it so my first name would now read as "LeeAnn." That worked. Ugh.
