Hey! [name_f]Welcome[/name_f], @alovelyavacado.

I was just thinking about the name [name_m]Graham[/name_m] tonight, so it’s funny you brought that up. I love [name_m]Graham[/name_m] because it makes me think of [name_m]Graham[/name_m] Crackers and is such a warm name. [name_f]My[/name_f] only issue is that, apparently, some people pronounce it “[name_u]Gray[/name_u]-em,” whereas others pronounce it “[name_m]Gram[/name_m].” I pronounce it the second way, but I don’t think it would be hard for people to adjust to whichever pronunciation you choose.

Other suggestions:

Laurie (since you mentioned [name_u]Leslie[/name_u], it made me think of [name_u]Laurie[/name_u] from [name_m]Little[/name_m] Women as it’s also a unisex name)

Alexander (my current favorite name and [name_m]Hamilton[/name_m] songs it so nicely)

Grant (kinda similar to [name_m]Graham[/name_m], but more blunt)

Reed

Bennett

Rowan (unisex)

Dean

Jack

Daniel

Max

Felix

Jasper

Henry

Peter

Blake (unisex again)

James

Welcome, @alovelyavacado! :wave:

Graham is a great name (although I confess that I pronounce it GRAY-um, as a [name_u]Brit[/name_u]). It’s strong and warm and not too common.

Leslie is also nice, but it does feel more androgynous than [name_m]Graham[/name_m]. I’m not sure whether you would prefer clearly masculine names, or more unisex ones?

If you like [name_m]Graham[/name_m] pronounced GRAM, you might like [name_m]Grant[/name_m]?

Others that give me a similar vibe are [name_m]Clark[/name_m], [name_u]Reid[/name_u], [name_m]Bram[/name_m], [name_m]Cole[/name_m], [name_u]Brooks[/name_u], [name_m]Hugh[/name_m], [name_m]Malcolm[/name_m]…

Graham is a nice name! I do feel [name_u]Leslie[/name_u] leans a little feminine even though it’s a unisex name.

Some other suggestions:

Grayson
[name_m]Griffon[/name_m]
[name_m]Boone[/name_m]
[name_u]Cody[/name_u]
[name_m]Cain[/name_m]
[name_m]Desmond[/name_m]
[name_u]Cade[/name_u]
[name_u]Sam[/name_u] / [name_m]Samuel[/name_m]
[name_u]Corey[/name_u]
[name_u]Spencer[/name_u] (since you’re a criminal minds fan and reid isn’t called [name_u]Spencer[/name_u] too often)
[name_u]Zeke[/name_u]

Graham is my favourite out of your choices - some more ideas that have similar vibes:

Calvin
[name_m]Walther[/name_m]
[name_u]Neil[/name_u]
[name_m]Ian[/name_m]
[name_m]Harris[/name_m]
[name_m]Louis[/name_m]
[name_m]Peter[/name_m]
[name_m]Paul[/name_m]
[name_m]Henry[/name_m]
[name_u]George[/name_u]
[name_m]Samuel[/name_m]
[name_m]William[/name_m]
[name_m]Edmund[/name_m]
[name_u]Maurice[/name_u]
[name_m]Clarence[/name_m]
[name_u]Claude[/name_u]
[name_m]Otto[/name_m]
[name_m]Malcolm[/name_m]
[name_u]Michael[/name_u]

I hope you like some of these :slight_smile:

I love the names [name_m]Leonardo[/name_m] ([name_m]Leo[/name_m]) for short or [name_u]Gray[/name_u].

Hey! I’m a trans man and I definitely feel you on having trouble narrowing it down to one name. What I did was try out a few names online or with close friends until one “stuck”, and then used the runner-up as a middle name. [name_f]My[/name_f] legal name is now [name_m]Raphael[/name_m] [name_u]Sparrow[/name_u] [name_u]Lynn[/name_u] ___. “[name_u]Sparrow[/name_u] [name_u]Lynn[/name_u]” is often seen as a somewhat feminine-leaning neutral combination, but since they are my middle names, it works for me. All this to say, if you really love [name_m]Graham[/name_m] and [name_u]Leslie[/name_u], you could just go with [name_m]Graham[/name_m] [name_u]Leslie[/name_u] (which I think is a great combo)! Or try any of these other names on for size and see how they feel - no rush!

I think [name_m]Graham[/name_m] Lesie sounds great, but you can definitely try a few names on for size!

[name_u]Laurence[/name_u]/Laurie
[name_m]Aaron[/name_m]
[name_m]Neander[/name_m]
[name_m]Dominic[/name_m]
[name_m]Dante[/name_m]

[name_m]Clark[/name_m]
[name_m]Abram[/name_m]
[name_m]Abraham[/name_m]

If Devereau isn’t right as a first name, what about as a middle name?

Hello and welcome! I’m excited for you and the opportunity to get to know yourself with a name that feels like you!

I like [name_m]Graham[/name_m] a lot. [name_u]Leslie[/name_u] is alright, as well, but it sounds like you are feeling [name_m]Graham[/name_m] a lot more. I really like the suggestions of [name_u]Reed[/name_u] and [name_u]Bennett[/name_u] for you. Names with a similar feel to me would include :

Sawyer
[name_u]Everett[/name_u]
[name_m]Edmond[/name_m]
[name_m]Gideon[/name_m]
[name_m]Simon[/name_m]
[name_u]Maxwell[/name_u]
