Why won't voice to text capitalize proper names?

I have a Samsung S9+ set to use Gboard, (though on "spelling correction" it indicates "Samsung Keyboard"-- and says it's using that for the "Default spell checker.")

I use voice to text all the time, and I don't understand why obvious proper names aren't always capitalized. I'm not talking about "Mark" or "Bob," words like that, which can also be simple nouns. I mean like with "Steve," or "Barbara," or "Williamsport," etc, etc. Almost always lower case. Somewhere there's a setting I'm not checking, is my guess, but I'll be darned if I can find it. Thanks for assistance with this.

Maybe it does that to avoid complains from people who have uncommon names. "what do you mean that my name is not a proper name!!!!"

Yeah, I checked that right away, seems as it should be; I have pretty much everything enabled. I don't see any reference online as far as Gboard settings related to capitalizing proper names....I've looked around.....usually I get directed to "samsung keyboard," which I do not like. Used it, don't care for it. Gboard searches were fruitless.
