    In the early years of autocorrect on phones, names weren't included in the phone's built in dictionary so there were few interesting ones. My two favourites were Nadia and Anna which came out as !!!!! and Bomb. Try explaining that one to MI5

    On my phone welsh words don't get autocorrected as they are not close enough to any real words

    my daughter made a shopping list on her phone the other day and when she got to the shop was baffled to find cannabis on it. She couldn't think what it was supposed to be but then realised it was bananas - at least that's what she told me!

    "Placements" has been known to autocorrect to "placentas" which is amusing in my job - students absent from their placentas. Advised them in their welcome lecture last Monday to seek medical help if that happens, especially the boys

    Talking of Welsh, I call mine the Autocarrot, then I found out that carrot in Welsh is 'moron', so now it's the Automoron, which is more apt on a couple of levels!
