During Sunday's 2014 Academy Awards, presenter John Travolta introduced an Idina Menzel musical number by referring to the singer and actress as "Adele Dazeem." That gaffe set Twitter and the rest of the internet ablaze.

Commemorating the occasion, the online publication Slate created the Adele Dazeem Name Generator to allow folks to Travoltify their names. We put Orlando Magic players' names into the Travoltifier. Here are the results.

Arron Afflalo: Aaron Andrenson, whose first name is at least a homophone for the genuine article's

Dewayne Dedmon: Donnie Dizzon

Maurice Harkless: Maisie Hazeems, who is not a cartoon mouse

Tobias Harris: Thomas Harvis, who did not author Red Dragon or any of Hannibal Lecter's other adventures, for that matter

Doron Lamb: Deacon Loing

Jason Maxiell: Jackson Mceezald

E'Twaun Moore: Ethan Moozure

Jameer Nelson: Jasper Nelseem

Andrew Nicholson: Ayden Hargision, who is not a Game of Thrones character

Victor Oladipo: Vincent Alexernder

Kyle O'Quinn: Kole Orteez

Ronnie Price: Rosie Pay-ne, which may or may not rhyme with Nenê

Adonis Thomas: Alexis Thompseen

Nik Vučević: Neil Daveries

I don't know about you, but I'm really looking forward to Donnie Dizzon's new mixtape featuring Kole Orteez.
