So, I have to choose a new name…
Because I’m sexually transitioning I need to to change my legal first-name, which is currently “Alexander”, to a female name and I’ve certainly been taking my time to decide! I just want it to be perfect, seeing as I have the chance to make it so. I’ve narrowed down my choices to 4 possible names and I’ve been asking my friends what they think suits me best and why.
I thought that anyone who has an opinion and sees this post could also let me know what they think.
The names I’m considering, in no particular order, are:
1) Aurora - meaning itself (Aurora).
Pronounced: “o ROR ah”.
2) Imogen - meaning “Maiden”.
Pronounced: “IM oh jen”.
3) Halion - My own variation from Halcyon, which means “Calm”.
Pronounced: “HAL ee on”.
4) Sable - meaning “Black”.
Pronounced: “SAY bull”.
This list is not necessarily final and should I hear a good suggestion, I suppose it could expand. However, I have looked at an enormous amount of names, so I suspect I have considered most suggestions people are going to throw at me.
Please note this post concerns my legal name, not my internet Alias. That will remain Sphirex :) …To clarify I currently use Sphi and Sphirex as my name in real life too.
But anyway… feel free to vote and let me know your opinions?
