Last names are spelled with all caps. Look at your driver license. The United States Federal government says the name ELO is spelled with all caps and the gentlemans birth certificate and license probably agrees with that spelling so that is what it's called.

*shrugs*

For a few days I thought Elo was ELO during my first days on DDO, and then I looked up Elo out of curiosity and it never said ELO, just Elo, and it was based off of Arpad Elo. Ever since then, it's been annoying. XD
