I don't think you can do this. What you CAN do is purchase a "Name-In-Game" tier of Prison Architect (or upgrade from your current purchase) which allows you to submit whatever name and prisoner biography you wish.

Do a search on "name in game" to find out more about this.

I really don't know the answer to your question, but that is where you can find the answer.

That was a question? I thought it was a statement (of sorts).

All of the data files and save files are plain text. This includes the list of names that come from the "Name in Game" tier, as well as the names of prisoners in the save file. You can change any of them to be pretty much whatever you want.

You mean I can indulge my inner spelling-Fascist, and improve all those bios? If so ... my life has just been healed, praise be to Xander!
