What's In A Name?
In which my niece has the AUDACITY
A silly thing happened yesterday.
My sister told me that my niece thinks her middle name, Elizabeth, is for Queen Elizbeth. And let me tell you I screamed! Not in anger but because of the audacity!
My niece’s middle name Elizabeth is because MY middle name is Elizabeth. I quickly told my sister to correct her because Namesake Child!
I told myself that if my niece ever wants to change her name, if she doesn’t vibe with any parts of her name when she’s older, or just wants her own identity and not have the weight of her aunt’s name, I would be absolutely fine with that.
Besides, changing names would be very much like her auntie anyways ;)
- Signed, a person who has changed their name and has multiple secret trans names anyways
