OTOH, the name ChucK is more distinctive *because* of the extra uppercase.

Sorry, could you please explain the joke. I don't know anything MS Word 

If I cared about that kind of pranks, I'd be more inclined to call a piece 
of software «that software» (all lowercase, without the doublequotes, no 
trademark symbol) and watch the trouble that ensues. But that's quite 
hypothetical. In reality, there is already enough trouble arising from 
uncovering ordinary everyday confusion, that there's nothing that I'd want 
to actually add to the mess.
