# Name

I prefer to be called ‘adi’, because it is short, easy to pronounce and easy to remember. However, since the advent of female viagra called “Addyi”, I have started rethinking this decision.

Most common spelling of my name is “aditya”. It is important to note that the first syllable is आ or ā or Ā . Since, ā is not a common ascii character, most people choose to use “a” and loose the correct sound “aa”. I feel preserving the sound was more important than convenience of writing. Yes, I legally changed my name from Aditya to Aaditya when I was in high school. In retrospect, I think I should have left it as it is.

## Any relation to name “Aditi” ?
