Does it matter if my name is misspelled on my insurance card?

I recently received my insurance card, but my name is misspelled. Will this cause any problems?

“If you’ve switched your car insurance, you should have received an insurance card in the mail. If your name is misspelled, chances are it’s not that big of a deal.
However, you may want to contact your insurance company to rectify the problem and to ensure that your insurance policy has the correct spelling of your name.”
