    My mother gave me an extremely feminine name. I have hated it all of my life. My middle name was no different. I have thought about changing it since I was a teenager. I used to make every one call me Joe.The name that I chose wasn't very masculine, but at least it's not a...

    I came across my other (original) name today

    and it was strange to enunciate the letters that formed it together. I repeat it slowly in my mind and it is as if I am trying to recollect the face of some distant acquaintance. The name sounds familiar, but whose is it? Its been over 4 years since I made the long awaited...

    Kinda Required

    Some clinics actually do require transsexuals to change thier name, even if they have a unisex name. Like it proves you mean it. BS. I changed my name because my new name suited me more and I needed to start over in a way. Also I wanted to distance myself from my family and be...

    Today I made a Statutory Declaration (in

    England) and officially changed from my male birth name to my new female name. It's very exciting - it feels like a major milestone in my transition.

    My Middle Name

    I changed my middle name - paid for it & everything.  Why?  Well I always hated my FIRST neame - probably mostly because it was repeated over & over with such a mean, disgusted tone, by my father & step mom.  I came to associate my...

    My Name

    When I was growing up, I hated my last name. Kids made fun of me and I couldn't wait to get married someday and change it. I grew up and married a very abusive man and when I divorced him ten years later I decided to legally change my last name. It was very exciting, ...

    Your Name, Your Identity

    Well all my life I have wanted to change my name and I've never felt comfortable with it. It's not that it's not pretty or that I'm not grateful for my mom having me. I just wanted to feel good about it and after all this time I have finally found a name that feels right. I am in...

    Changed My Username Slightly...

    For my friends circle, used to be "anardun" now I'm "anadude" on EP. I hope that doesn't confuse anybody. It's close enough to the old username that it shouldn't be too big of a problem. I just needed it to be slightly different.

    Actually it was done

    for me when I was about 12. When I was 11 my father whom I was named after was coerced by CPS to voluntarily cede all claims to my younger sister and me. As soon as the documents were signed, my mother packed his bags! She was also damned if my sister and I retained any links to...

    I Changed My First Name When I Was Young

    I was only 20. I grew up with the name Julian. This is a rather effeminate name, which makes for a bad time when you grow up in a working-class, rednecky area. I was bullied and abused because of it (besides other things). I hated the name, so I legally changed it to Andrew. I...
