Real life note: My name is Inigo. Pretty much everyone calls me that, barring family. Even family make an effort now in conversation with others, and getting them to switch, if I eventually do, will not necessarily be a battle. My little sister calls me Inigo in conversation.

This isn't just important because of transition, and my masculine, although that adds to it. It's about leaving certain things behind, it's (for me at least, for personal reasons) to do with my queer identity and my religious/moral code. (It's origin is in my confirmation name: St Inigo was a very calm man who reformed a monastery when not being a hermit. At the time I had issues with anger and expression, and I chose it because he seemed a Saint who existed and with whose values I believe.)

Please use that name, if you want to refer to me by a non internet handle/nickname that I accept. Please do it with other people as well. I don't mind slip ups, I mind people not registering it.

This isn't relevant to everybody. I just thought I should post it
