I know many people believe "Innogen" is the correct spelling, but you should still accept "Imogen"

The nurse from R&J. She's got so many lines.

Jaquenetia is not correct--the character in Love's Labours Lost is Jacquenetta. Probably just a typo, but it explains why 0% have gotten it. Well plus it's pretty darn obscure, but still

especially for @darkphalanx have corrected the name - seriously well done on picking up an obscure character typo :)

A couple other spellings: Elinor in King John, and as historical as she might be, Anne Bullen. Maybe Shakespeare was too busy making up words to check spellings. :)

Also, why does "Dowager Countess of Roussillon" count but "Princess of France" doesn't?
May 23rd, 2011 at 23:05 GMT
@slamb The info says characters with actual names. So Nurse doesn't count.

Please accept "Phebe" as an alternative spelling for "Phoebe"- it's spelt that way in many of the editions I've seen, as well as on Wikipedia.
