Don't laugh - I've often been mistaken for a woman on the phone, even so far as someone asking me to spell my name (I think they thought I said "Ellen") and saying, "Huh. That's an odd name for a woman."

He was sooooooo embarassed. :)

The first time you ever called me at college there was a note up on my white board that said "Ellen called". Took me half an hour to figure out that it was 'Allen' not 'Ellen'.

I'd have thought Alex would be more common than Alan. Wow. :)
