My preferred name is they/them. I am a full stack programmer currently studying @ UCSC.and my preferred pronouns are
My former name, a name which I loved, is Zephyr. That said, I am changing it because Zephyr has a bit of a masculine connotation. Since I am nonbinary I prefer a name which mixes masculinity and femininity.
In greek mythology, the Greek god Zephyr, god of the west wind, is married to Iris, the Greek goddess of rainbows. I decided to sandwich the two names together to get Zephiris.
The name can also be broken down into three nicknames:
- -> For when I seem more masculine
- ~> For when I seem more feminine
- -~ For when I seem more androgynous
All three are equally correct, so use whichever one you think fits me best in the moment. Of course you can also call me by my full name, Zephiris, too.
