I'm Aik

Image by Anne-Julie

My surname is Aik. It's originally Yeap but when my grandfather was born, the nurse mistakenly wrote his surname as Aik, so that's how the surname 'Aik' was created.

I don't know why, but a lot of people always get it wrong. Once, I won a giveaway and the host wrote my name as : Akia

Wow. That means little chick in Hochiew.

Another two wrote my name as Aki. Sounds like Japanese to me. XD

Does my name really sound so strange? Tell me what you think about it.
