Can we add this information to this page to help clarify what is and is not acceptable? This if from my post on the G2G forum and was provided by Aleš.

"In 751 suggestion allowed separators are Space, minus, dot, comma, single quotation and I don't remember why a question mark (maybe it falls under another suggestion). All other separators trigger a suggestion. There can be some false suggestions in different alphabets (Arabic,...)" Thanks!!

Actually all names in "" disappear on edit, so you have to retype them.

I have found the nickname field blank and yet it displays a nickname with double quotes on each end. I believe this is caused during a merge. Actually typing a nickname into the blank field seems to fix this.

Hello, I am trying to clean up these errors, and am having trouble getting rid of the quote marks on nicknames. They don't show in the edit field.

Thanks for bringing these things to my attention. This also means I need to go thru my Roots Magic to clean it up and delete the old GEDCOM.
