Just to add to what Maggie stated, it should be O'Farrill, not OFarrill.
I just tested this and I also discovered I could not add an apostrophe in the real name field. (Nor did using the iso code & # 39 ; work.) I did find a work-around that you could use in the mean time, the right curly single quote symbol. Copy and paste this:
