Reply To: Whats in a name, second thoughts

Meran Berwyck


I chose a new surname as well as feminine first name.  My birth name is/was too masculine and my old surname was too strange.   If anyone did a search on my old surname, they would find things I’d rather keep to myself.  I have been outed by my siblings/family for years, but they only know me by either my birth name or an old feminine name I used to use.  They are so transphobic!

I’ve been using this name for the last 6 years.  I had used three other names before, also with different surnames since 1995.  I chose this name (Meran) as it is European and used by both genders.  Even though my heritage is German, I chose an Irish surname as well.  Nothing in my name now points to anything close to my birth name.  Not even the initials.
