Gender NEWtral NAME (terrible pun, I'm so sorry)

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] berries!

My friend is nonbinary and is looking for a new name. They have a Cuban/Spanish background and would like a name that works with that ethnicity/language.

Their current name consists of a very common, feminine name and a common Spanish surname, so they want the new name to be uncommon and very gender neutral.

Some names they are considering:

  • [name_f]Azul[/name_f] (Spanish for “blue”, pron. ah-ZOOL)
  • [name_u]Indigo[/name_u]

Although those both happen to be color names, your suggestions don’t have to be. Above all, the names should be unique, compatible in both Spanish and English, come with a cool nickname (or two), and gender neutral.

Thanks in advance!

[name_u]Indigo[/name_u] and [name_f]Azul[/name_f] are great


I love [name_f]Azul[/name_f]! That’s a super cool name. I like the suggestion of [name_u]Rio[/name_u], I know a boy and a girl named [name_u]Rio[/name_u]! Sorry for any repeats:

[name_m]Caelan[/name_m] (cay-lin)
[name_u]Chandler[/name_u] (I know a boy and a girl named [name_u]Chandler[/name_u])
[name_u]Frankie[/name_u] (I know 2 boys and a girl named [name_u]Frankie[/name_u])

Thanks for your suggestions, @greyblue and @fairyrose! My friend particularly liked your mutual suggestion of “[name_m]Sol[/name_m]”- it works in a ton of different ways for them.

Their new list is:

  1. [name_m]Sol[/name_m]
  2. [name_f]Azul[/name_f]
  3. Tie: [name_u]Indigo[/name_u] or [name_u]Rio[/name_u]

Also, new info: They were considering the name [name_u]Rosario[/name_u] but decided against it due to the meaning. They also wanted to mention that their current first name starts with an S, so [name_m]Sol[/name_m] is great because it keeps the initial and would ease the transition.

Any other suggestions along those lines (and those previously mentioned) would be greatly appreciated! We’ll keep you posted!

Hey so I know this is old, but I wanted to share an update: they decided on [name_m]Sol[/name_m] as a name! Thanks immensely for your help!

[name_m]Sol[/name_m] is great!!!

[name_u]Indiana[/name_u] ([name_f][name_u]Indy[/name_u][/name_f])
[name_u]Torrance[/name_u] (tori)

Congrats to them!!
