I had a boyfriend named Lorin, and how that name aided in his psychological castration as a male child! As a boy, kids would tease him by calling him "Lor-ee!" He grimaced telling me this, decades later. As an adult, all his mail says Ms. on it. And forget about the bureaucratic red tape with any applications for school, car, etc. Someone introduced us once as Andrea and Lorin, and the newcomer said, Ok, you must be Andrea (to Lorin), and you must be Lorin (to me).
