Once upon a time, a pop culture figure with a hard-to-spell name would change it to something easier for the public to deal with. That doesn't happen so much now, so we have celebrities with names that are more challenging to spell. Can you spell Jake or Maggie Gyllenhaal's name without looking at it? An online celebrity name spelling test will try your memory, and give you a flow diagram of how other people diverged from your guess while you do it. Note: you can only take the test once, and if you dump out of it to go to the results, you can't go back. The diagrams in the results page will spell out the correct answer and other people's wrong answers. I failed every one, because I never tried to learn any of the names- I rely on copy/paste to spell names correctly. I've never even heard this filmmaker's name pronounced. -via Kottke
