Ah, with me it's the other way around - I'm always Mr.

E-ending seems to be more feminine in some languages.

In the Reality Dysfunction series by Peter Hamilton, there's a female mercenary whose first name is Janne. It was a bit disorienting at first...

Jane and Jan are both common female names in the USA. Maybe it thought it was a spelling mistake?

--JPS, 26-Aug-2004

Janne is actually a female name in Norway and the Netherlands, at least.

Luckily mine is so rare and its suggestive gender is wholly dependent on culture that people usually go with whatever I announce myself as. Except in the UK, where they lovingly embrace the jocular, suggestive undertones of it and insist on calling me 'Tiger'.

You should change the spelling to that of the creepy new age Yanni, then people might know you're a man.


Or maybe not.

Perhaps I'll just rather be myself and reap loads of fun every time someone else gets confused :-D

No, no, let ME be you (and you can be someone else). I've always wanted to be a world famous techno-geek/Finnish Blogger. Since I was a lad, Really!! :-) I'll even wear the dress!!

Err... You're scaring me now, Foster :-D
