Default If you were the opposite sex, what would your preferred name be?

This is a super important research subject I'm working on, so bear with me. It's real simple: Imagine your sex would automagically be switched tomorrow, what name would you take? Also bonus points for clarifying why you chose that name.


I would choose Svetlana, because it has a powerful and demanding sound to it.

Default Re: If you were the opposite sex, what would your preferred name be?

I'll make you happy because I'll choose a name... and two alternatives.

Paulette. Because it sounds stylish and I like that "ette" at the end.

Two alternatives: Helene or Bertha. More or less for the same reason... and also those names sound good (at least to me) when someone pronounces them.

Now... What did I win?

I'd probably stick with Jet, as it's pretty gender neutral. (Some would say it is a feminine name as is...).

Default Re: If you were the opposite sex, what would your preferred name be?

I'd go with Rin.
Sure it's a simple & easy to pronounce name, which has some advantages, but...
Mainly, I just got too attached to that name over time because of my nickname. So I can hardly imagine any other name for a female myself.

Default Re: If you were the opposite sex, what would your preferred name be?

well technically, "Solais", who's one of the 4 personas I have identified and separated inside my own psyche and personality is female, but that's not the point and it's just my own insanity anyways

Alice. (The English version, not the Hungarian version, which would be "Alíz", but I really don't like that one.)

Alternatively, if the impossible would happen in my life and I'd have a daughter, I'd name her Alice as well.

I just really like that name for some reason.

Now I wonder, about what is this super duper important research to ask such question?

If it can be known, of course, I'm just curious.
