My first name came to me in a series of dreams in which I was called "Sarah". I picked my last name out of a phone book, since I hated my last name and was ready to get rid of it. My ex came up with my middle name. I liked it, and If it's not too sensitive of a topic

Take the B off and add the M.
That's what I meant. :)

I chose Alice because of Christina Henry's book Alice.
My daughter bought me the book for Christmas in the year that I came out to my GP and got referred to Gender Services. In it the main character, Alice, is an overly tall woman who has to pretend to be a boy for her own safety. Helping Alice is a man called Hatcher whose real name is my deadname. Alice struggles to come to terms with being a magician asking herself many of the questions I asked myself when coming to terms that I was trans (unlike Alice, I always knew I was trans but knowing you are trans and coming to terms with it are not the same thing).

As for what is now my middle name but I debated making it my last name, Skye comes from the island in Scotland. I eventually decided to keep my surname because it makes things easier for my daughter at school and for no other reason. I changed my signature though so I don't use my surname in it and just the initial instead and other than official documentation, I don't use my surname. It is a reminder that my parents are not fully accepting of me... so I don't like using it.

I'm still looking for a name that matches me. Funny story, I grew up with two different first names because my parents couldn't agree on what name I should have. My mom one and got the legal first name but dad refused to have anyone I grew up with call me by that name. So I grew up by my second name, and it has been super frustrating figuring out when to use which in legal/professional environments. Plus they loaded me up with 5 (yes 5) middle names that sound french or german :sick:. (no offense to those peoples ofc!)

Long and short of it I've never fully clicked with my names but I'm still looking around. Collie came from the fact that I started a small channel on Youtube and that is a part of my pseudonym on there. Here's to hoping I will find something truly me down the line.
