Sex change?

So for a couple of weeks of been meaning to post about various things, but always keep forgetting, and not getting around to it. So tonight i'll see how many of said things i can remember and successful post about. First off:

So for 20 years i knew only 1 person with a name that started Aist and that was a male named aistis. but in the past year i've met 2 females named aiste, one at studentu camp, and one here in lithuania. Also there is graffiti all around vilnius that says wru aiste.

This leads to the inevitable question of which name is more common, aistis or aiste. Any ideas on the matter? Anyone else know anyone else named aiste or aistis?

Also while on the subject of names, saturday night i met a girl named gitana at a club, and when i remarked that we both had very unusual names she said that she knew other people named gitana. does anyone else know anyone named gitana? i guess it's not that strange, just gita with a na at the end, but i certainly don't know anyone else named gitana.

first of all, the dean's secratary refuses to count up all the aistes vs. aistises at my college.

second of all, gitana is weirder than you think. i don't know about all gitas, but all the ones i have talked about it with are shortenings of sigita. if your name is sigita and it's too long, you choose either siga or gita. if it's not just gita + na, it's sigitana. now that's a hell of a name!

i have never heard of another gitana... but everyone i have ever talked to about the name lokys hads remarked how strange it is... i wonder if and when it will ever be popular? also, remember when that lithuanian tried to explain it in english, and kept saying, "it means beer. his name means beer."
