Google needs to add a custom dictionary or something that serves a similar purpose. There's Google Docs and Gmail spell check that seem to flag some words or proper nouns as misspelled. Google should either:

1. Add a custom dictionary similar to MS Word which is specific per Google account and is used across all its services, Docs, Gmail, etc.

2. In a recent Google Blog post they advised using Google search to find the correct spelling for words. Well they could employ that same method into the spell checker.

Both are fairly simple to add and use. I would be content with either one. But please for god's sake stop asking me if I misspelled my name every time I send out an email.

PS- I hope they also add a feature to change a lower case "i" to the uppercase "I". That would be great.
