Yes, I've had teachers read my first name as the female version out in class/training courses etc a couple times when I was younger as it looks similar at a glance, so that always got laughs & unwanted attention, it's also not pronounced exactly how it's spelled, worded out etc, there's silent letters, but that was mainly non native English speakers again.
My surname read as its spelled is not the correct pronunciation either, that happened a time or 2, mainly with people where English wasn't there first language though.
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. - Macbeth
