    Smile How should I sign my name with the title in an email?

    Hello everyone!

    Is it all right to inlcude your title in the signature of an email?
    Despite being a lady, I am addressed as Mr. at times because I am an Indian with an Indian name which most people are not able to gender classify. Therefore, I decided to change my signature as follows:

    Ms. Parvathy Lakshmanan


    Am I right in doing so?

    Hope someone will help me out with my query.

    Thanks
    Paru

    Although my name is well known to anyone speaking German, (Lore) in the english speaking world it is often misunderstood and I have been addressed in letters etc. many times as Mr.

    So, what I generally do is to sign it as Lore S............. (Ms) I also do it that way when hand-writing something where I think the person reading it might not be familiar with the name.
