Apparently eggcorns can show up even in personal names.
I came across this YouTube video today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFI9pvSqvEQ
Hmm. Richard Darwins? That must be Richard DaWKins, the Oxford evolutionary biologist well known for his violent atheism.
And given that Darwin is the father of the theory of evolution, it’s not very surprising that his name would show up in evolution-related eggcorns.
