Heads up! I've changed from CharleyEcho to CalliEcho. It's about time to distance myself from my deadname!

I wish I could change my name too D:

This one is attached to many bad memories and an inexperienced and naive me.

Plus I use another name more more commonly now :3

Yay for new name. And when it is legal, you'll have a new holiday to celebrate, Naming Day. I try to do something to celebrate it every year. Is like a second birthday.

Can't forget about the HRT-iversary! That's one I definitely look forward to, to help track my transition progress~

That one I haven't kept track of... I think it's been 14 years, as my name change was 14 years ago. I got the name change before HRT actually.

what's a deadname? first time i'm hearing that term

It's a term used by trans people who change their name. It's basically the same as "birth name," but trans people tend to want to leave the old name dead, in the dust.

Hence: deadname!

Also: necronym!
