It's random, so with only a few letters, it's possible that it will more likely spell out the name correctly (vis-à-vis a longer name, although that's possible as well).

I actually do agree with this, but that is because I have Teheran stuck in my head due to the Atlanta Braves starting pitcher, Julio Teheran. So, those who are Braves fans may also get mixed up with it. Now, I do understand that last names of baseball players doesn't count as to accept an incorrect spelling of a word.

I had it come up as Tokyo for Tokyo - So maybe there aren't enough letters to make it random or the puzzle set has a glitch in it.

It being random it should eventually end up on Tokyo as well. And with 5 letters, two of which are the same - it doesn't have *that* many mutations compared to some others.

Same here, except I finally managed a score of 10/20. Oogadoogou, Ougadougu, Oagudougu, bah. At least on this one the spelling police should be happy. It only accepts exact spellings due to the nature of the quiz.
