So we were asked to share our name story and this is mine! Basically I grew up in Girl Scouts and was very close with my grandmother since she was the leader, and was also a life long girl scout. I had a very strong tie with nature and the forest, it was always my happy place as a kid, especially since the troop went camping about once a month. When I realized I was trans that was the only thing I could think of, I wanted a name that connected me to her and to my family in some way and nature felt like a good way to do it. And double points because my dad was Native American and he used to give me lectures about appreciating and respecting nature because god and all the spirits in the world exist and thrive in nature. So I looked up “nature boy names” and just went down the list, and Rowan stuck out the most for me. Especially after I looked up what a rowan tree was. I loved it and I still do. Took me a while to refer to myself as rowan but I wouldn’t trade my name for the world
