Linde, I think you forget that you are responding to a thread on the non-transitioning page. As noted, this was a number of years ago. I was well known in my professional community, have a recognizable (unusual) last name that would have produced my full name and professional address if googled. I am (and plan to remain out of respect to my agreement with my wife) tightly closeted. NancyWhy could you not use your standard last name, just with Nancy in front of it?
When I did my name and gender change, I had the chance to change everything, but I decided to keep my last name, because that keeps me in line with my family background. Now that I am in the process o change my birth certificate, I am glad that I did so.
