I have seen quite a few emails from people, who have my name misspelt as “Ashiwn”. The correct order of letters in my name are “Ashwin”.
But sometimes, to my wonder, I used to make the same mistake when typing my name in the e-mail signature or in any other form.
I thought for a while today and got to know the root cause(!!). This particular mistake occurs, more often with people who are well-versed in keyboard typing (i.e., they have formally trained themselves in keyboard typing). As the alphabet “i” comes immediately after “h” and the trained ones are very good in typing “a-z” in the appropriate order, they are bound to misspell my name as “Ashiwn” (Note the “i” following the “h”).
So I have to conclude that those who misspell my name as “Ashiwn” are formally trained in keyboard typing (or they are self-trained in typing).
I would love to hear any such permutations of your name, that are commonly used by people…
P.S.: Hope you must have got my message that I am formally trained in typing, as I make the same mistake 🙂
