    Does anyone on here use a preferred name?

    I'm not transgender but my name is very girly and I'd like to use a more neutral sounding name. I want to keep my first name legally, but I would rather if people called me by my new name. I don't know how to go about doing this. I'm going to start university soon and I am hoping it'll be like a fresh start.

    I remember from my uni detail confirmation thing, there was an option for a preferred name.. may be worth getting into contact with your uni about that, then I'm sure it would be possible to have registers to print out your name like that..
