I am FTM transgender and am trying to choose a name for myself. [name_f]My[/name_f] mom and friends are helping but I want opinions from outside my close circle. [name_f]My[/name_f] family is originally from [name_f]India[/name_f] (last name is Kumar) so I would prefer a name of [name_f]Indian[/name_f] heritage. However I do want it to be easy to pronounce and spell so both Americans and Indians can say/spell it without difficulty. Some of the names I am thinking about are “traditionally” American but could work in [name_f]India[/name_f] as well. Could you give your opinion on each name (ex. which you like, which you don’t like and why). I want a comprehensive “opinions list” to refer to and choose from.
Reyaan/Reyan - can’t decide on spelling? Which one do you prefer/is more common?
Aavyan/Avyan - same questions as Reyaan/Reyan
[name_m]Nathan[/name_m] - Could this work in [name_f]India[/name_f]? How would it be pronounced?
Eshaan/Eshan - same question as Reyaan/Reyan
Dylan/Dillon/Dhilan/Dilan - same questions as Reyaan/Reyan and [name_m]Nathan[/name_m]
Could you please suggest some other names? I want more ideas but can’t think of any.
P.S. I can’t use names that end in K (ex. [name_m]Vivek[/name_m], Karthik) because it would clash with my last name.
Thank you so much for your help!
