Automatic capitalisation of guest names

Often we have guests write their names without proper capitalisation, and then the automated emails look unprofessional until we manually correct:

Example; Hello john doe 


So could the system not automatically fix each word so only the first letter of each is capitalised? 

Would be a time saver!

The trouble is that not all names work that way.  What about deWitt?  Or O'Hara?

It's not hard to code some rules around this to handle this.

-If guest enters all lowercase, convert to title case

-If guest enters all uppercase, convert to title case

-If guest enters a mix, make no changes

Agreed, and it could be something you enable on your account, therefore accepting that there may be some inconsistencies.
