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.
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.
