Better instructions:

1) Go to Configuration -> Preferences for current account -> Basic

2) Set your Full name to:
Jesse "The Body" Ventura

3) Send an email to yourself.

4) Observe that the incoming email's header gets changed to:
From: Jesse The Body <your at email.address>

and Claws Mail displays it as:
Jesse The Body

I am testing this over Gmail, so I do not know if it is a mistake of gmail to
remove the surname Ventura.

I now manually escape the quotes with a backslash, in the Full name:
Jesse \"The Body\" Ventura

When I now send an email to myself, the entire From header is preserved:
From: "Jesse \"The Body\" Ventura" <your at email.address>

and Claws Mail displays it correctly as:
Jesse "The Body" Ventura
