Hi!! Could you help me pick a name? I'm a 17 year old transboy, and I go by he/him pronouns. My birth name, Maddi, sounds too feminine to me, and I really like old-fashioned sounding names with like a twist of modern (if that makes sense? Sorry) ex. I really like names like Ezra, Gray, Dylan, etc. (could I also get your opinion on Dylan, because ya know, Bob Dylan, but Im worried my friends will think I'm weird) I'm sorry this ask is garbled but I figured I would ask. Love your blog btw! Thanks!
Thank you! Your ask made perfect sense. Picking a name off of someone you like, for example, Bob Dylan, is in my opinion, one of the best ways to name yourself. The name is already important to you, which makes it more likely to fit. The name sounds lovely. What your friends might think doesn’t matter - your name is yours. Pick something you’ll want to hear for the rest of your life.
Abraham (More modernly, can be shortened to Abe or Bram.)
Levi (Often a shortened form of Leviticus.)
While these following names may not match the feel your aiming for, they’re all related to Bob Dylan, so I thought to include them.
Hollis (Ballad of Hollis Brown)
Davey (Who Killed Davey Moore?)
Willie (Blind Willie McTell)
Romeo (Desolation Row)
Davis (Desolation Row)
Woody (Song to Woody)
Homer (Open the Door Homer)
Percy (Percy’s Song)
Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn))
Frankie Lee (The Ballad Of Frankie Lee And Judas Priest)
Montgomery (Tiny Montgomery)
