Several americans said that they though that my name (Dennis) is unusual for Russia. Why do they think so?

The same problem for my colleague from France: nikIta or nikitA ? :-))

"nikIta" vs "nikitA" - it's cool :-)
The same problem with my name.
In Russia I'm "DenIs".
In the US "DenIse" is female name.

So I changed my name here to "DEnnis" :-)

Re: (Fe)Male
Change name to standard american name "Dan" seems more efficient.

Which good points in your workplace now? :)

"Dan" - is short from "Daniel" :-)
So it's too far from original "Denis" in my passport.

Re: (Fe)Male
"Dan" - is short from "Daniel", in your case it will be short from "Dennis". Just take it :)

It's rare case for anyone looks in your passport :))

They rarely look at ID, but if they do - it's better to have the same name in passport and in spoken conversation.
