I have one as an ASL Interpreter student. People have been asking me, does it have to come from a Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing person?
I was taught that it should come from a deaf (and preferably Deaf) person, but then later I ran into a lot of deaf people who thought that was BS. Maybe times are changing, I don't know, but it was drummed into me, so personally I won't give anyone a name sign. (Except my husband, and I consulted with someone in the community for his.)
Mine was given to me by a deaf friend who loved my curly hair, so it's related to that.
