Look in Mail Preferences>Accounts, select your iCloud account then in Account Information the 'Full Name' field.
Also at http://icloud.com, go to the Mail page, click the cogwheel icon at top right and choose 'Preferences'; then click the 'Accounts' icon in the toolbar of the pane which opens and look at the 'Full name' field.

Cheers Roger but this is nothihng to do with my icloud account. In any case the full name is correct in all these places which I have exhaustively checked.
Somehow my system has just assigned this ridiculous spelling to me. I wondered if it has something to do with voice recognition?
I do recall playing around with the accessibility features ....

I would also suggest that you just check your System Preferences>Users, and make sure that your full name for your User account is still correct. It all sounds very weird, no? I can see why it would drive you crazy! I HATE it when unexplained things go on that no matter how many things you try, you just can't figure out!

Heya Gail (or "Gael" as my Mail program would probably call you!)
Nope ... checked there as well.
Basically everywhere I have input my name it is correct. My frustration is it is not as if I have mistyped anywhere. This is a spelling that has just come from nowhere.
**** you Apple gremlins .... but so shiny ....... LOL

Hahaha liane ! It's good that you can still find a little levity with this situation....
I'm sure you have also tried the reboot option as well?
I cannot even begin to imagine where this is happening or why....what a nightmare for you!!!
Hang in there, and if I come across anything that might be a clue, I'll be sure to repost to this thread....
