I found out today that I know one Eva Rees and one Evan Rees.

Any other similar stories out there?


The only other time I play the gender-switch-by-dropping-some-letters game is when I meet trans folks, then try to figure out if the name they were just introduced to me was something derived or not.

If I was born female I would've been named Hannah Bass.

I went to middle school with a Hannah Pass.

I'm not sure what my girlname would have been, but there is a semi-famous cellist named Natalie Haas.

I've known guys named Danny with both my maiden and married names. So, more than one letter difference but identical pronunciation.

Ha.

Also, is this your first comment in the like five years we've been LJ friends?

It might be. I don't comment, but I read your posts in that strange, online-stalker way. I've enjoyed the dam photos lately.

I wish I had known that as a good number of my posts are friends-only!

Jeremy went to school with a girl who's last name was also "Rees" and when we went to his reunion they gave us her pictures.

I also remembered that my dad's mom and my mom (his wife) have the same name. And since he married her, she also has the same last name.
