19. I agree

IRL my name is Adrienne. It's a unisex name - though men in American tend to have it spelled Adrian. And often my name gets confused with the male version on email chains - and then people in the company meet/speak to me and are surprised I'm a woman. But their treatment of me does not change.

Though . . . if you are familiar with the program Entourage - I've been getting called Adrienne Gold since 2006 around here.

And I'm okay with that - because ambition, bold language, risk taking, and demanding flawless execution of co-workers are female traits.
