Basically I booked two tickets on DY's inaugural flight from LGW to NCE next April...
During the booking, I had the option to select passengers as "male" and "female", though I don't remember at any point that they gave me the chance to select "Mrs, Miss etc." for the female passenger.
I downloaded Norwegian's iPhone app and entered my reservation - they are now displaying my girlfriend as "Mrs xxx xxx". Is this something to worry about? (The incorrect name that is, not the possibility that she secretly got married). Do I need to change it? If so, how?

I don't really think it makes a difference. The gender is included in reservations to calculate weight and balance (I believe females are calculated a bit lighter) and in certain international flights the passenger data has to be forwarded to the authorities, including the gender.
But the differentiation within the gender, for all I know it is totally irrelevant. Mrs, miss, ms, mr, dr, ... I have seen airlines where you can select things like lord and mistress and such. I don't even think it appears in your eticket or your boarding pass which will only read SMITH / JANEMRS or something. The "Miss" and such are used in email communication so they can address you right. I'd guess some doctors throw a fit if you don't address them with "Dr".
But all of this is just my good guess and I take no responsibility if the gate agent won't let your gf board unless she marries you on the spot
Now that would be a story to tell the kids.
All the things you probably hate about travelling are warm reminders that I'm home
