Are you serious? I can’t even be bothered to update my phone number when it changes. How do you deal with changing your name for no reason?

That's what I'm trying to deal with now.

I didn't decide on a new name for just on a whim, a lot of thought went into it.

iktf. i changed my name because i found out it was a meme name. however i didn't use it for as long as you
>>

I had a meme name too. Used pretty much exclusively by catfishes and lying whores. It didn't really resonate much with me but after going by it and my dead name I sometimes get identity crisis. My new name is special to me but it feels bad just going through names like tissues.

What were your meme names?

How do you change a name after transition and the first name change?
>>
>>9561318
I don't want to say what it was.

I didn't get my stuff legally changed yet so that works out for me for the better.
>>
>>9561318
thankfully it was before i changed my documents and records so i just did it like anyone else would do.

Transphobia is killing me :'(

this is kinda how I feel, worst case Ontario I start going by my middle name which is another name I was considering (first name amber middle name lauren, I chose amber bc i was already used to it from it being the first word of a screen name I used as a teenager, so everyone called me by it online)

solution: stop picking meme names
>pick one in the top 200 names for women born in your birth year
>pick one starting with the same initial as your birth name so it feels familiar
>hard mode: pick a name that has similar scansion to your birth name
>common names are better for us, to blend in

I picked a pretty exotic name this time around. Only a very small handful of people in America would have it.

No.
