I realised there were a few inconsistencies with spelling so I'm trying to determine which are correct.

The three lists I'm using are the WCA database, Jessica Fridrich's list and Jaap Scherphuis' list.

  • Piotr Sebeński: Listed as "Piotr Serbeński" elsewhere, seems to be undisputed as an error
  • Jerome Jean-Charles: While all lists are the same, he appears to have a book published as "Jérome, and another as "Jérôme"
  • Ken`ichi Ueno: The "`" character is unique to Ken`ichi's name in the database and it is listed with an apostrophe in the other lists.
  • Jozsef Borsos: Listed as "József" in Jaap's list.
  • Luc Van Laethem: Listed in both other lists as "Luc van Laethem". I was unable to work out what is more likely
  • Giuseppe Romeo: Listed as "Guiseppe" in both other lists, but this may be an error of the other lists.
  • Jari Sandqvist: Listed as "Jan" in Jaap's list.
