It's not a stupid question, but it is a stupid Subject field. That's
easy to fix though: in future, please write a Subject field that

Yes, because names have a specific set of characters that must be
used: A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and the underscore.

That doesn't follow; it just means that character isn't allowed for
names. This does have the advantage that, if necessary, it can be used
in future (the '@' symbol was recently added to the language, though
it didn't have a meaning before).
