Hello, my name is Michael/Max Emerson. I'm kinda in name purgatory. Let me explain why. I've been going by Max for 4 years, since even before I came out. And everyone in my life calls me Max, with the few occasional doctors or substitute teachers or slip ups. But I never chose the name, and lately that's been bothering me. How it came about: I was doing a skit in theater class, and my name in the skit was Max. That's it. It just kinda stuck. To the point that, when I came out, I asked my mom to call me Max. That was 4 years ago. And lately the name doesn't feel quite right. It's my name, sure, but it feels wrong. And I want to change it. To Michael. Pros for changing it: Euphoria when I hear my name, More traditionally masculine(as opposed to neutral) and I really like the name, and the nickname is Mikey Cons: Mom wouldn't like it, it would confuse people I am not out to as trans, it would confuse my little brothers I need advice.
