New name for me?

I’m a trans man and looking for my name. At the moment I’m going by [name_u]Quincey[/name_u], which I like, but I’m worried it’s too obscure and not typical for men my age.

I have my eye mostly on 2 syllable names that aren’t too generic but still possibly names given to a boy at birth.

I turn 20 this [name_u]December[/name_u], my birth name began with S, and my surname begins with W, if that helps. :blush:

Some names similar to what I’m looking for include

  • [name_m]Oscar[/name_m]
  • [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u]
  • [name_m]Caleb[/name_m]
  • [name_u]Aidan[/name_u]
  • [name_u]Callan[/name_u]
  • [name_m]Felix[/name_m]
  • [name_u]Milo[/name_u]
  • [name_u]Connor[/name_u]
  • [name_m]Ethan[/name_m]
  • [name_u]Jasper[/name_u]
  • [name_m]Westley[/name_m]

If it helps, I knew someone named [name_u]Quincy[/name_u] at birth. He should be about your age rn. (He was in my youth orchestra, but graduated a few years ago)

[name_u]Noel[/name_u] (December birthday and all)

[name_u]Quincey[/name_u] doesn’t seem odd on a 20 year old to me, but I understand the struggle of feeling like a name you pick is “too old” or “too young” for you.

keeping age in mind, my picks off of your list would be [name_m]Oscar[/name_m], [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u], [name_m]Caleb[/name_m], [name_u]Connor[/name_u], [name_m]Ethan[/name_m], and [name_m]Westley[/name_m]. I know people around your age with these or similar names!

[name_u]Aidan[/name_u], [name_u]Callan[/name_u], [name_m]Felix[/name_m], [name_u]Milo[/name_u], and [name_u]Jasper[/name_u] – falling in line with more recent trends – seem like “younger” names to me, but nonetheless could work on someone regardless of age.

suggestions 🍂

[name_u]Arthur[/name_u] “Art”
[name_m]Theodore[/name_m] “Teddy” “Theo”
[name_u]Leo[/name_u] / [name_m]Leonard[/name_m]
[name_u]Elijah[/name_u] “Eli”
[name_u]Benjamin[/name_u] “Ben” “Benji”
[name_u]Julian[/name_u] “Jules”
[name_m]Samuel[/name_m] “Sam”
[name_m]Nathaniel[/name_m] “Nate” “Nathan”
[name_m]Jacob[/name_m] “Jake” “Jay”
[name_m]Nicholas[/name_m] “Nick” “Nico”
[name_m]Calvin[/name_m] “Cal”
[name_u]Cameron[/name_u] “Cam”
[name_m]Quintin[/name_m] “Quinn”
[name_m]Silas[/name_m] “Si”
[name_m]Andrew[/name_m] “Andy” “Drew”
[name_m]Sebastian[/name_m] “Seb” “Baz”
[name_u]Maxwell[/name_u] “Max”
[name_u]Edward[/name_u] “Ed” “Eddie”

Best of luck with the process; I hope you find one you love! :black_heart::transgender_flag:

I think Syler is a handsome name kind of like [name_u]Tyler[/name_u] but it’s not it’s unique

[name_u]Quincey[/name_u] is so cool! [name_u]Love[/name_u] the Dracula association! Still, if it isn’t feeling right, [name_m]Oscar[/name_m], [name_m]Felix[/name_m], [name_u]Jasper[/name_u] and [name_u]Gabriel[/name_u] are wonderful!!

I’ll suggest:

What do you think about [name_u]Ezra[/name_u]? I also like [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] and [name_m]Felix[/name_m], they are timeless classics imo!

I love [name_m]Conor[/name_m]! A classic name, but is not too popular. I will also suggest:


Haha, how did you guess I chose it for the Dracula association?
