I know an even weirder one. I work with a woman called Jocelyn (usually "Jos") but she says
that at a few different, unrelated places in her life she has been called Bronwyn instead. And
she's had two different surnames so that can't be misleading people either! Very strange to
have people assume you are really called something quite different to your real name. Maybe
it's the "yn" at the end that confuses people?
