In present study the process of choosing a name in the transgender and non-binary (TGNB) community was investigated. A qualitative investigation with open-ended questions was conducted to achieve this goal. The total sample included 124 individuals (46 non-binary, 66 trans masculine, and 12 trans feminine). Seven overarching themes emerged from the reflective thematic analysis, which can be divided into two broad macro areas: 1) the process of deciding on a name; 2) identity values that the TGNB person’s choice of name may have. The peculiarities of the Italian context and the ways they affect the process are discussed.

Abstract

In present study the process of choosing a name in the transgender and non-binary (TGNB) community was investigated. A qualitative investigation with open-ended questions was conducted to achieve this goal. The total sample included 124 individuals (46 non-binary, 66 trans masculine, and 12 trans feminine). Seven overarching themes emerged from the reflective thematic analysis, which can be divided into two broad macro areas: 1) the process of deciding on a name; 2) identity values that the TGNB person’s choice of name may have. The peculiarities of the Italian context and the ways they affect the process are discussed.
