    Hey, hi beautiful people !
    Here is the thing : I identify myself as agender/non-binary and I would like to change my name because it is very gendered in my country. I have made a little list of names that I really like and feel a connection with but how am I sure I'm choosing the right one ? Does anyone have any tips ?
    Thanks in advance for your answer and have a good day/night :)

    I think one of the best things to do is just experiment. Maybe you could ask people to call you one name and the next week a different one. It's good to get a feel for how the name sounds to you.

    I agree with Ali B! Trying out the names can help you decide what fits best! Just know to be sure what name you feel best with before changing it legally, as I'm guessing you already know. I would suggest setting a decent amount of time that you use the one you feel fits before starting the process. Best of wishes fellow Agender friend! ✌
