I just finished reading a book where the main character has a baby. At the time of its birth, the parents both state explicitly that he will be given the name 'James' and this is used initially.

A couple of chapters later, the baby's name suddenly and inexplicably changes to 'Charles' and he is referred to by that name for the rest of the book.

On first reading the name change, I thought maybe I had been mistaken, so I went back to check.

Surely this is a mistake that the copy editor should have picked up, even if the author or the proofreader didn't?

ETA Just realised this thread has reached 26 pages, so I'll repost this in a new thread, so the Mods can lock this one.
