Name rating thread for mtf and ftm. Bi gay les anything else are welcome to rate names/judge autistic snowflake names
Anons post up the names they want/possibly want AND what language their country speaks (Marie-Claire in the US? No. Harald if you're not from Scandinavia? No.)
Example posts (don't actually rate those names I have already chosen mine so I don't care):
Annabelle, Maxine, Charlotte; French-speaking
John, Steven, George; English region
Not terribly common, but at least in the top 1000 most common in the US for the past fourty years or so according to social security records. I've never actually heard the name pronounced, is it like 'Joel' or 'Jo-Eel' or 'Jo-Elly'? Maybe it's just me, but maybe other people will have trouble knowing how they should pronounce it when they see it written, I don't know.
Don't know enough about Australian or Slavic to judge
FTM / 10
But if you like it, rock it.
Isn't that a Japanese name? Or is it taken from somewhere else? I don't think it's English, in any case. It sounds nice anyways.
A less common spelling than Jacqueline, but not terribly uncommon unless you were born in the 2000's (the Jacklyn spelling seems to have become uncommon then, no idea why). Seems fine in any case, might get you called 'Jack' as a nickname though, not sure if you're okay with that.
It seems to be pretty common, although I think it's more common as a hispanic name. I don't know how common it is among other groups (and I don't know what your ethnicity is), so maybe consider whether it fits your background or not.
A lot more common according to social security records than I thought; maybe it's only common in a region I haven't lived. I guess it's fine if it's common, in any case.
thanks! Jo-ehl. It's kinda close to my birth name and I'm a sucker for references.
Joan doesn't feel like a young name- not that it feels like an old name! nobody's going to clock you with it, I don't think. one syllable and as far from snowflake as can be gotten.
Stuck between Jane and Emma, both fairly common around my birth-year. I would have gone with Anne or Annie (again, both fairly common if a little close to the infamous Alice) since they're so close to my old name that you could mistake saying one for the other, but it's my sister's middle name and my grandmother's first name, so that's right out. Eileen is a possibility but a distant one.
David William could sound good, but probably only if you have a one or two syllable last name. If it'd longer or ends on a soft letter, try Mark, John or something else shorter. Also, Canada has a LOT of very different areas with different naming traditions. Nova scotia obviously has gaelic influences where BC is more anglo-saxon and quebec is full of frenchies. So it depends on the area, I guess.
Yeah, I get what you're saying. I'm not sure whether I'll have to change my last name yet, right now it's three syllables and russian but depending on how disowned I am when my father finds out I'm trans I might have to change it. The one I'd change it two would be two syllables.
I'm in Ontario now but it's pretty diverse here, probably about 75-80% of people have foreign names, ie. asian, middle eastern, irish, russian, etc. So fitting in isn't bad as long as you're not like a white guy named Amir with a russian last name or something.
Missed your reply. I don't know, I just have a middle name now and it would be kind of strange without one? I guess everyone has one here, people would just think I'm trying to hide a weird middle name if I said I didn't have one.
I go by Eve. I'm from Germany and it's not common at all over here, but I was called Yves in French before and it's pronounced the same. So I essentially kept my name. Do you guys think that's cheating or is it legit, if I never hated my name by itself too much.
I don't want something too feminine.
Pic is of what I wish I looked like.
Jenna is a good name.
Is Raven really that edgy? I'm about as far away from edgy as you can get, so I dont think most people who know me personally would think that. I have had to drap with some "that's so Raven" jokes, although I sorta expected that.
>although I think it's more common as a hispanic name
That's because you're American. Nina is Russian/Slavic name that is also popular in hispanic regions. Same as how ton of Americans seems to think "Sophia" is a Hispanic name. No, bitch, it's not, it literally means "wisdom" in Greek and a ton of European noble and royal ladies and Queens had the name. Hell Franz Ferdinand's wife was called Sophia.
Hey, same. Did you used to be a Nicole, by any chance? I feel less awkward asking people to call me something that's really similar to my old name than I would if I changed it to something completely different.
well it can be spelt with an i or y, kinda like tony.
i got it from a girl from school who's called remi and i thought it was a really nice name, something a little different but not tumblr special snowflake tier.
