    My name sign is the sign for "motorcycle" with the throttle hand as an "E" because I love riding my motorcycle. This name was given to me from my deaf friend and as part of the deaf community being given a "sign name" is significant and truly a special thing. I didn't think that it was such a significant thing at first, or even understand why it was so hard for someone to just come up with one. But now I have been blessed with a "right of passage" by knowing that I have been accepted to such a phenomenal community!!!

    My name sign is a 'j' swinging over my face like bangs because back in middle I always styled my hair very EMO like. I went to a Deaf get together and I was soooo shy. I didn't look at anyone really and a few people tried to talk to me but I was so nervous and they just randomly started calling me 'j'. I no longer have my hair in my face so it confuses everyone why my name sign is that. Lol I will never forget it because it is special to me. I think after that day I wanted to learn more and grow. I do believe name signs have to be special to you. You can't name yourself, someone has to do it. They also have to be deaf too. (Sorry that I seem to be repeating what others had said but it's true.)I would get so mad(I am a hot headed person) when my other family would give each other name signs(none of them are deaf). I am not Deaf either but it felt disrespectful because it felt like they did not fully understand the importance of a name sign. I might be over the top when it comes to names but mine was special. Basically don't rush to get a name sign. Like someone just said "it is common to not have a name sign." Sorry I was just kind of ranting.

    Had a name sign given to me by my elementary school teachers and it kind of stuck ever since. It's the T sign used as the water sign on the chin. Alternatively, they'd do the same thing with my last name, since it starts with a W and of course, used like a water sign. Funny coincidence: my birth sign is Cancer, a water sign!

    Interestingly enough, I don't have a sign name. Unless friends have one they use behind my back. Point finger and thumb curled together. :)
