I don’t know about you, but sometimes I read people’s names before I actually meet them in person.  This is really no big deal, especially considering the tech-age we’re living in now.  It does throw me for a loop, however, when I thought someone was a guy when they’re really a girl, and vice-versa. Here are some of the names I’ve been stymied by recently-can you guess the right gender?

  • Johnee (I didn’t actually wonder about this one)
  • Ari
  • Taiga
  • Shahriyar
  • Mahsuni
  • Paz
  • Alexei

It’s a bit like when you hear a voice on the radio and picture them one way, but then you see their face smiling on a billboard, and you think to yourself, “Is that really what they look like?!!”
