Nonbinary Names FAQs

How Many Genders are There?

Gender is best understood if we look past the two gender binaries and look at gender as more of a feeling than a biological makeup. According to Medical News Today, although there are several recognized genders in the U.S. and abroad, there is no fixed gender limit (1).

In What Age Can You Identify Your Gender?

Around age two is when children begin to identify gender differences, and at age five or six, they may have a more fixed gender identity (2). Providing children with gender-expansive language and various gender examples will help them to understand themselves and others more.

How Do I Choose a Non-Binary Name?

The beauty of choosing a non-binary name is that it can happen at any point. If you are a parent, you can choose a name for your child that is androgynous. Suppose you are transitioning or exploring your gender identity as a teenager or in adulthood. In that case, you can choose a name that resonates with your characteristics independent of restrictive gender norms.

Can a Non-Binary Person Change Their Name?

Simply put, yes. If you are a minor, then you’ll need adult consent. If you are an adult, you’ll need to follow the rules of your State and local government to change your name legally. Depending on where you live, the process may take up to a year. In the meantime, you can still have those who support your gender identity refer to you by your chosen name.
