Baku, this is probably a really dumb question, but where did you come up with your name?
hey! my name started out as a nickname that i didn’t really like ppl calling me, so i ended up shortening it to baku and it ended up sticking with me. when i accepted myself as trans and started to present more masculine, the name ‘baku’ felt masculine to me and it really helped with my dysphoria. a few years later and everyone calls me it- people irl, included!
i didn’t really expect it to become my name but i feel pretty attached to it now. i’ll be changing my name legally this summer so i can finally be rid of my birthname, too!
also, there are no dumb questions nonny, i promise!
