When I was in high school I always experienced my name lining up in guys attendance record. That really pisses me off. They always mistook my name to a guys name, by the way my name is Lincolyn Franz. My mom got my name from an American president no other than Abraham Lincoln while Franz, she got from the country France she just change ce to z. One time my professor asked me and my classmates to pass our project, I waited for her to call my name on the girls list but she didn't. After calling the girls names I wondered why she didn't call my name. I didn't expect that she will call me in the guys list but she did, I feel so embarrassed especially when my classmates started laughing.

He should, for few would call him that. hehehe. You have a nice name and I don't think anyone would mistake you for a guy. And as for me, only my name can be compared to a guy. My face and body are 100% girl. lol

Your name is very cool but it would have been a difficult name for a girl to handle. I bet it was hard during your school years. I have never had that kind of problem but I did get teased for many other things like my looks.

I like your name. It's unique. Sorry you get teased for that. I use to get teased for my last name being it is a body part, lol So you can imagine the embarrassement I went through. Now I'm married so that changed. They are just jealous that's all. You have a great name.

hi rhyannefranz, that's funny (oppsss....sorry for laughing :)) i myself don't have such experiences, as my name is 'sexually' clear. but a friend of mine in college did. his name is mercy emily tuuk, which sound like a feminine name. most of times, she (i mean he) had to undergo his name lining up in girls attendance record. sometimes, our senior arranged a champ for us as a part of our welcome ceremony. the committee decide whose name should belong to which group, meant which tent. and god bless him, his name lined up in a female group (un)fortunately the mistake was immediately found before something happened lol...

I tried to laugh about it also, but sometimes it just gets on my nerve and I want to scream out loud that I am a GIRL. But a guy with a girls name is also funny. Laughing out Loud. Just kidding. I know where his coming from so I can relate to what he feels. But I know by now he is coping like me with our names.

I think that is the name that make you unique and it is much more a man's name if you will really read it but it is ok nobody know and hope that one day the person will call you Lyn for short for it a ladies name right.....human error right.
