Titles and initials can be [[GenderMisdirection misleading]] too, since many are [[DoubleStandard assumed to be male]]. Expect SamusIsAGirl reaction when the actual gender of the title bearer is revealed. [[note]]This seems to be even worse in German as well: Most nouns are gender specific (A "Polizist" is a male police officer ("Polizisten" is the plural form), a "Polizistin" is a female police officer ("Polizistinnen" as a plural)) but when you don't ''clearly'' mean a woman or women (and sometimes even then) often the male form is used. e.g. A group of nine female and one male police officer would be reffered to with the term that grammatically means many male police officers ("Polizisten").[[/note]]

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Shirley Dame Vera Stephanie Shirley]] shortened her name to "Steve" Shirley in the 1960s so that her business mail could get through the door in an era when women needed their husbands or fathers to co-sign for a bank account. Everyone still calls her Steve.
