When a previous colleague of mine would reference me in messages or emails, auto-correct would sometimes change my name “Linds” to “Linda.” It happened so often that Linda became a nickname of mine and a sort of pseudonym. Now it’s stuck! Everyone at my last workplace called me Linda. So I would tell the story to my friends, and it caught on with them. Even my parents, who named me at birth, don’t correct a message anymore if it says Linda; they just think the whole thing is hilarious.
