I'm trying to add a specific name, ALICEA EDGARDO, into the unique values symbology.  I type in the name as below:

But when I try to commit what I typed in by hitting enter (or tab) it throws in a semicolon, rendering it a value that does not exist in the data.  Why is there a semicolon being add and how can I stop it?  Is the add value window using some particular encoding?

This data is a half million or so polygons so I don't want to wait for it to automatically load nearly a million values just so I can break symbology for one single value.

Look at the actual data record.  If (when) the data record itself has a semi colon in it, your  'Value' column reflects that.  But that's why you are offered the 'Label' column.

The only place I can find a semi colon anywhere in this attribute field is when Pro adds one as above.  It's like it's trying to make a list with the space translated as a semicolon.

What is the data source?  What version of Pro are you using?
