"It's alright, I rarely meet anyone who's able to read it properly. Although personally, I never thought that it to be an odd of a name. Once I give people the pronunciation, they tend to remember my name by easily associating me with it. A unique face, a unique moniker."

Nice, thanks for posting this, Arvind. "Laughing about it" looks like a good category to be in
Some interesting (although not entirely unexpected) observations, other than the obvious high Atheist - Atheist pairings:
1. The low likelihood of Muslim - Atheist couplings.
2.Both Hindu males and females pair off more often with Christians (both Protestants and Catholics) or Atheists/Agnostics than with other Hindus. Multiple interpretations are possible here.

I just got out of a relationship with a guy who is exactly like my father.
And my father and I had diametrically opposite views.
This guy is chauvinistic, religious and hypocritical. I always thought that it only matters to me that the person I am with respects my views, but I also think it would compel me to respect theirs, and I can't respect theism.
So, it is pretty important to me that my partners view are based in logic, whatever they may be.
