    That happens in many common names, like McGowan. It will also be used in
    tech terms that need to avoid space for some reason or other (domain name
    technical restrictions, for example), like FarsiWeb, that's the name of a
    project on Persian standardization issues, or SearchEngine, the term
    Arthur C Clarke used for some global search engine and AI in his late book
    "The Light of Other Days", co-authored by Stephen Baxter.
