We all look for those names that are masculine or feminine.
In all seriousness, it is important for us to discover and learn how each of our names are supposed to be used. It is also true, however, that many women and girls are not going to enjoy the name you originally wanted so instead of wasting your time searching for a name to hate, choose some more interesting names and you will never be unhappy. It doesn’t matter if the name is masculine, feminine or any other.
The author of this blog is a Gothic maiden name, in her mid-twenties. The author was born and raised in Minnesota and is a professional painter who is currently living in the Seattle area where she works at a gallery and paints landscapes and portraits. I started toying with Gothic maiden names because they are feminine and because the artist name I chose is from a Gothic poet, but I am still trying not to worry about the gender.
I have come to believe that the world does not need another person with such a unique and fascinating name. People already have too much to cope with and too many unique personalities around. In my mind, it would not be fair or right to spend even more time worrying about another unique person when we already have so many people like me with similar names. I know what you’re thinking — this is what happened when the Gothic maiden name thing exploded on me.
I think I know what happened. Its something you have in common with your character, or maybe youre not so much into gender roles. Maybe you enjoy the company of females in general and have already done some feminizing by growing some long, fluffy hair, by getting a boob job, and maybe one or two other things. Or maybe you just like to think about it. Maybe you have always wanted to be able to change your name and then do so with your head.
