I have been speaking asl for the past 3 years, and I’m unsure as to a few sign name rules. I’ve been hard of hearing my whole life, and so has my father. I’m not deaf, but I’m also not hearing; I never really know what culture allowed to identify with. So I’m unsure what cultural things I can and can not do. For example, can I give sign names to my hearing friends? I know it’s an honor to receive a sign name, and hearing people can’t give them, but what about hard of hearing people? I respect lots of my friends deeply, and how they’ve learned asl to help me, but I don’t want to disrespect deaf culture at all. Please help, thank you!
