My poor grandfather suffered most of his life from being given the name
Shirley Horatio (after an uncle who died in the US Civil War).  My
grandmother's name is Veronica, but she is usually called Ronnie by her
family, so people always assumed Shirley was the wife and Ronnie was the
husband.  He called himself Shirl, but even that didn't help much.  Most
of our family's name are very gender-obvious, as a result.
