After John Travolta messed up Idina Menzel's name at the Oscars, Slate.com came up with widget that will figure out your "Travoltified" name. Enter a name. It spits out a mangled moniker.

Yesterday, we told you about John Travolta's flub introduction of Idina Menzel at the Academy Awards, calling her Adele Dazim. Viewers mocked Travolta on Tweeter, and a Travolta fire name generator went viral on Slate.com. Enter a name, it spits out a mangled moniker.
