You say that, but I can very well seeing people spelling it 'Pearl' to get past a recruiter/HR person who is searching for a 'pearl programmer'.
Do you really think the HR people are that bad?? I mean, they get a stack of resumes in and most of them spell it "Perl", so they reject those in favor of the few spelling it "Pearl"?? Or that they are all entry level clueless people -- that there are not any people in HR with a few years of hiring experience or have a clue and can do their job done out of the gate? Or that they can't read the description the hiring manager sent them, with "Perl" in it?

And speaking of the hiring manager, what do you think happens when HR brings him your resume? He will likely 1) pass on it and 2) clear any misunderstanding of "Pearl" vs. "Perl" at that time.

The other way that HR issue gets resolved is a couple weeks later when the hiring manager checks in with HR to find out why hardly anyone is applying for the job or why HR is passing on so many applicants, where the spelling issue will likely be resolved.

Sorry, but you are better off spelling the language name correctly, because odds are if there is an issue at the HR level it will be caught, corrected for, and likely not made again. And if they do keep making it, is that a company you would want to work for?? And do you really want to tailor your resume for those types of companies?!?
