namO nArAyaNA!

there is no problem if somebody says "his name" and
then dasan instead of sarman in his abhivadanam. since
not everybody who gets his upanayanam done, gets the
pancha samskaram done, he is instructed to use the
word sarman. only after panchasamskaram is done, he
gets dasan as the suffix. so he is more used to using
saraman in his abhivadhanam....

THERE WOULDNT BE ANY MISTAKE IF HE USES DASAN INSTEAD
OF SARMAN IN ABHIVADANAM. 

I WOULD REQUEST OTHER LEARNED MEMBERS TO GIVE THEIR
VIEW POINT ALSO.
