Stressing about my name

doublezero 5/14/2021 07:39 pm 217

So I'm ftm and I chose my name to be Goose a while ago before I even fully figured out my gender. Slightly more recently (a while after I realized I was trans) I chose my middle name to be Miles. I go by both (i normally introduce myself as Goose and say you can also call me Miles), but I'm not sure if I should make my middle name Goose and my first name Miles. I don't have too much a preference for either. Most people call me Goose just because I told people that name first. Sometimes people don't take me seriously because of my name and I feel bad sometimes. It's part of the reason I say they can also call me Miles. When I write my name I always write my middle name too. It'll be some time before I can legally change my name, but I still wanted your guys opinions. It's another thing I'm stressing out about that I don't need to be stressing out about. I'm not sure if I prefer "Goose Miles [last name]" over "Miles Goose [last name]" or vice a versa. Plz halp.


TL;DR Idk if I should switch my first and middle names.

#1 its your name and other people really shouldn't have an opinion about it. It should be whatever makes you more comfortable not what other people think it should be. Goose is a good name and if you like it that's really all that matters.

#2 if you don't think people take you seriously try visibly carrying a sword. I have found that people take you more seriously when you have access to sharp things
