I´m a transguy and I´m going to change my name soon to pass better. As the law of my country allows transpeople to have just so called "neutral" name before having their surgery, I need to find an unisex name. I want to be Daniel in the end so I would like to persuade the authorities (Birth Register is probably its name in English) that "Dan" can be used for females as well as for males. Everybody knows Dan is the short form for Daniel, not many people know Dan is used in Chinesse for females... and probably for males as well. I need to prove that Dan is the short form of some female name or is used as a female name in some languages.
Any comments or suggestions?
