Pride Baby Names

I know there are several pride figures and activists like [name_m]Harvey[/name_m] Milk and [name_m]Bayard[/name_m] [name_m]Rustin[/name_m] but are there subtle baby Name options like [name_f]Iris[/name_f] (rainbow for the pride flag) or [name_m]Ace[/name_m] (for asexuality) ? [name_m]Can[/name_m] anyone think of other options?

Good topic! Hmmm I’m sure there are tons of names like that, @regionlatbest suggested some great ones! [name_f]Blossom[/name_f] comes to mind immediately. I’m going to add a few more here as I think of them.

Enola’s name page has a pretty negative review but I think it could work well as a subtle connection for aro/ace since backwards it spells “alone.” That takes a little more of a leap to distinguish context but I think it works.

not as big of a connection, but could always use color names for each flag color!

I feel like pride names can be broken into a few categories, and the ones I can think of are: Activists, Symbols, and Meaning, so I’ve provided a sort of short/jumping-off-point list of names for each

Activist names:

Marsha ([name_f]Marsha[/name_f] P [name_m]Johnson[/name_m])
[name_f]Angela[/name_f] ([name_f]Angela[/name_f] [name_u]Davis[/name_u])
[name_m]Craig[/name_m], [name_m]Fred[/name_m], [name_f]Ellen[/name_f], or [name_f]Linda[/name_f] (the four people who proposed holding a march the year after [name_m]Stonewall[/name_m])
[name_f]Alison[/name_f] ([name_f]Alison[/name_f] Bechdel)
[name_f]Judith[/name_f] ([name_f]Judith[/name_f] [name_m]Butler[/name_m])
[name_f]Audre[/name_f] ([name_f]Audre[/name_f] Lorde)
[name_m]Gilbert[/name_m] ([name_m]Gilbert[/name_m] [name_m]Baker[/name_m], creator of the rainbow flag)
[name_u]James[/name_u] ([name_u]James[/name_u] [name_u]Baldwin[/name_u])
etc, etc.

For hidden symbols referring back to the community:

Dorothy (friend of dorothy)
[name_f]Violet[/name_f] (very famous historic lesbian symbol)
[name_f]Lavender[/name_f] (historic lesbian symbol)

Names that have meanings I associate with pride (eg [name_u]Brave[/name_u], [name_u]Freedom[/name_u], [name_u]Noble[/name_u], [name_u]Light[/name_u]):

Caelan (people of victory)
