    Like the title says i am only brainstorming for ideas. I refuse to pick something, for sure, and change my name all over again until i can get on T an transition socially and know for sure. Making sure i 'look' like my name is important to me. Cause i refuse to pick off the top 10 chart for my birth decade. So i'm gonna list first and middle names i like! My last name reads like its supposed to be French, but we've never pronounced it that way. Just a little fun fact. Idk if we have any actual french ancestry or if its just a unique last name.

    First names i like and have always liked - Theodore and Robert - and middle names i like are Johnathan, Alexander, Samuel, and Nathaniel. If you can't tell, i like unique names that are still normal boys names. Growing up a girl i was one of like five girls in my class with the same name, so i hate that. But at the same time i don't want some outlandish name no one has ever heard of. Anyone else have cool ideas? Like i said i'm not changing it now.

    I like Theodore, but maybe I'm biaised, lol.

    I'm French, so I wanted my name to be French, too. Another name I thought about was Isidore, but I felt it was maybe too uncommon now. Otherwise, maybe I could suggest another list of old French names:

    -Alphonse
    -Armand
    -Arthur
    -Casimir
    -Cyrille
    -Ernest
    -Gustave
    -Henri
    -Isaac
    -Joseph
    -Laurent
    -Noel
    -Octave
    -Quentin
    -Remi
    -Simon
    -Virgile

    Good luck with your name :slight_smile:

    Theodore or “Theo”’s a nice name.

    -Zachary “Zach”
    -Benjamin “Ben”
    -Jerome
    -Vincent
    -Oliver
    -Matthew
    -Martin
    -Andrew

    Thanks for the ideas guys! Green, how are you biased...? Lol i got the name idea Theodore from the Harry Potter books and its always stuck with me. Robert idk where i got it but even tho it sounds like a bit dated of a name i like it. I like their nicknames too - Theo and Robbie. I would spend hours and hours planning male characters for stories and spend an inordinate amount of time on small things like the name and clothes. So i've had time to pick out names i like. But its hard when some of them i already associate with people.
