How did you choose your name?

For those of you who chose your own name, how did you choose it?

If you feel comfortable saying, which name did you choose/ which names have you chosen, if you have/ have had many?

And do you find importance in legally changing it?

Name? Our REAL names or our screen names? I did not choose my real name. My parents did.

My screen name is my real name, so that is how I chose it.

I just picked the name that felt right. I don't want to disclose it on here.

And legally changing it was very important. I couldn't live with my birth name on all of my legal docs.

I picked the male versions of my given first and middle names, it just made sense. I haven't officially changed it yet, though.

I did a LOT of looking through baby name sites, chose out the names I liked the best, then bothered my friends asking them which ones were most "me".

Ummm I'm still in the process of it. I haven't found the right one yet.

I spent months trying to pick the perfect name, but none stuck. Eventually my friend tried calling me by a name and it clicked. Unfortunately, she got it from a Hannah Montana song. To add a bit of class to my name, I chose a middle name from the Tolkien universe, so I now have the middle name Tinuviel.

My wife used to be Dan. Dan was her middle name, and she wanted to keep her initials. so she changed it to something that mimicked her mother's name, and was able to keep her initials and make the transition easier on others too.
then she took her daughter's middle name as her own. it wasn't hard for her to respond to the new name, but it was hard to stop responding to Dan.

I chose the name that had always been my favorite, the name that I would have loved to have 'if only I'd been born a boy'.

I do find importance in legally changing it- it's my real, true name. I don't want to be stuck with a name that someone else arbitrarily chose for me for the rest of my life.

Well, I really liked the name Alex, but then I found myself turning my head every single time someone named Alex was around me (which was not something I was used to, I had a VERY uncommon name from birth)

I liked the sound of the name Alex, so I decided to find a name that had the same letters. So I came to the name Maxwell, which has a lot of the same sounds in it. (Unless I wanted to be known as Axel, but it didn't fit me...)

My name is actually the beginning of my birth name, although that wasn't what I planned. I was trying to stick to the same first letter, and also find an androgynous name, so that narrowed things down a lot. Makes it easier to explain as a nickname in places I'm not out in, though.
