Does this bear any relation to the Spanish word for Germany - 'Alemania'?

Yes, it comes from the name for the tribe from the south of Germany, The Alemanni.

Is there any reason why it won't accept "Megan's going..." as well as "Megan is going..."?

I think the software confuses Megan's with a possessive.
