"I don't meet many people with my name but it does somewhat bother me that girls have my name too. it just seems to be a masculine name. Anyways, people spell it wrong often and once at Starbucks, they wrote my name as Ashwin... not very close. It isnt pronounced wrong most of the time, but a lot of the time, people will call me Austin. Im going to guess that I am not the only one, when introduced, hears the phrase "Ashton Kutcher?""
