To the best of my knowledge, your professor is full of it.  For years, I 
was listed in the White Pages as "TANSTAFFL."  The phone company put up a 
fuss at first, but I bullied them into it.

In the same White Pages a gay bartender in San Francisco's Castro 
district used the name, Kate Forna, which in telephone order is: 

			Forna, Kate

Works for me.
