Who checks the checks?

The newest data point in my ongoing "people are confused by apostrophes" study: The husband and I recently ordered new checks for our joint bank account, printed with both of our names. They arrived this week. His last name is rendered correctly -- "O'REILLY" -- but immediately beneath that, I am listed as "MOLLIE WILSON O. REILLY." I believe Gob Bluth said it best: Come ON.
