My last name sounds like a first name, so sometimes people address me as my last name in emails. The thing I don’t understand is - outlook tells you that it is “Last Name, First Name” when you hover over their email. At my old firm, one person my level with an obvious sounding last name (let’s say it was “Jankenson”) repetitively did this to me, so I started doing it back. My MD thought it was hilarious, but looking back - it seemed childish. I still don’t know why I decided to share this.

Had an interview a couple hours ago and one of the questions was to talk about some other similar partner companies I've worked with and I completely blanked and only talked about one (although it was a significant one). Should I throw in names of some of the other companies when I send my thank you or just let it go? He didn't seem to keep pushing the question so I'm assuming my answer covered it. But probably would've been helpful to include more names for variety.
