If the city of Birmingham, England has its way, Mike O'Malley would just be Mike Omalley, and G'harne D'agistino would be Gharne Dgastino. Why? Because computers hate apostrophes. Birmingham has banned them entirely from street names because GPS doesn’t know how to handle places like St. Paul’s Square. Rather than change the programming language, it apparently is easier to change the English language.
However, in the case of De’Cody Fagg, changing dropping the apostrophe won’t help one bit.
