  • "Always hated my birth name and tried to squirm away from it with nicknames, but my sister's just officially changed hers so I thought I would too. We made a day of picking out baby names for my adult self and kept coming back to Dante. I like that it's masculine, but soft when you say it, because that's how I'm trying to be. And I've wished I had an actual Italian name for years. Not used to it yet but I'm excited to be. -- Dante :)" Jul. 13, 2020: Report as inappropriate
