The Word Never Heard Correctly

What is the probability that Aunt Margaret or Uncle Herman heard a last name of place of birth for a relative incorrectly? The more I listen to music from the 1980s on media where I can easily get song titles and lyrics, the more I realize there were many words and titles I had heard or interpreted incorrectly.

Any chance Aunt Margaret or Uncle Herman heard it wrong without realizing it? Might be better than you think.

Something to remember with that name or birth place that only appears on one record. It could be a mangling of the real thing.
