I’m just curious. How did you get to your new name?
I’m still trying to decide mine. My mum told me once that if I was born a girl, I would have been called Rebecca, and by rights, I can’t help thinking that I should maybe take that, but when I was in school I had an immense crush on a girl called Rebecca, and so that sort of feels a little bit “uncomfortable”, if that makes sense?
Jane or Janie’s a bit of a placeholder for me since I’ve always liked the name, but I’ll eventually find one that just ‘feels like me’. I mean, it’s not like a character that you can put on and take off like a costume, so it’s quite a big decision! 🤣😂🤣 I do want a “normal” name though and nothing too unusual.
I know that some people go with the regendered version of their own name – Terry-Theresa or Nicholas to Nicola, for instance.
