What's with a misspelling?

When people ask me why I misspell my name “Gorov” I usually do nothing better than tackle it with a goofy smile so that the entire pleasure is of the questioner’s! The first impression continues to be a weak link. A few times in the past, however, I have shaken my disinclination in explaining that Gorov is like “Go” “Rov”! And since Rov is a very much usable syllable as with “Rover” or “Roving”, it suits my purpose! I would like to deny that it has anything to do with sounding like Russian even though tennis-playing lasses from that country are very much physically attractive and can easily be subject of male fantasy disputably making such a dismissal uncertain!
