Kenny McCormick's last name.

Why was Kenny McCormick's last name sometimes spelled as "McKormick"? Is this an error, or was that intentional?

They didn't think fans would care how it's spelled. This is the same reason Broflovski was spelled four or five different ways in the first three seasons.

Not to mention it's fun to mutilate names out of Eastern Europe, particularly the Slavic language family. The fewer vowels in a name the more possibilities to screw up in spectacular fashion.

Kyle's last name has been consistent as Broflovski for about ten years now.

Kenny's last name switches between McCormick and McKormick spelling, but the former is more common. The latter only really came up in Seasons 4 & 5, and I think once in the last 2-3 seasons. But 'McCormick' appeared as far back as "Pinkeye" and has been used as recently as "T. M. I."

Plus the official site used Broflovski and McCormick, last I checked.
