It’s amazing how much our names shape our identities. Many of us grow into the names we are given at birth. Others never feel a connection to their name.
But crossdressers and transgender women have the unique advantage of being able to choose their feminine names.
There’s a unique story behind every great femme name… and I’d love to hear YOURS!
How did you choose your feminine name?
Please share your story in the comments below. And for extra credit, include a photo! It’s even better to be able to place a name to a face.
My name has nothing to do with my birth name. I have always liked the name Julie. Then as time went by I was stuck on my middle name. Then it came to me.
Been using that name for several years. I love that name. Why I really don’t know but I do.
Mine just happened. I had never even considered a female name. I was dressed and someone asked what my name was and if I had time to think I’d have picked Veronica or Cassandra or something exotic like that, but on the spot, in that moment, I opened my mouth and said, “Jennie.”
Then I realized that Jennie *was* my name.
I originally chose ariel as a name, of course from the lil mermaid. I guess she was my first idol. I dint like introducing myself with it though. I ended up choosing shantel. who, was like my unicorn in school. that one girl everyone wants. I got her ona few dates but never closed the deal. idk, I always idealized her after that.
Although my heritage is a mix of various nationalities my distant past is South England. Morgan is a Celtic given name traditionally used in Wales, Brittany and Scotland. In the UK and Ireland it is traditionally a male name but more commonly a female name in today’s society. To me the name Morgan is personal in my family beginnings but feminine to me and my personality.
I have known two Heather’s in my life, and both of these ladies had class. My name is a reminder to me that there is a particular way that I ought to carry myself. With so many of us thought of as a joke in the world, it is important to me to carry myself in equal balanced parts. Such being intelligence without arrogance, dignity without to much pride, humility in heart to esteem others, and self respect without self rejection, and so on.
It is a name that, for me, invokes a calm strength.
My male name is William and I went by Billy for a long time since I saw my female side is a reflection of myself I took the first letter of my name and check the reflection of it which is D and after that Danielle was the name I chose and I go by Danni for short. Been that way for a long time now and I have been crossdressing since I was 8, I’m nearing my 30th birthday in about a week.
Hi Lucille Love your name. Mine was easy to pick. Shortened up my real name which is Donald to donna and added girl because I thought it sounded good and I always wanted to be one.
1982 Scottsdale , AZ – think fast . Well , Jan works male or female , and I have a name tag for Jane Doe which draws a laugh some times .
as far as names, I picked susan but I don’t know why. I am susan ann only because I had a aunt named ann. but even if I am male and someone says susan I usually turn around because I am so used to it.
take care…..enjoy your weather out there
