Well depending on what situation your in name changes could be acceptable. For example if your parents thought it was funny to name you car when your last name is parker (car parker) then I would think that a name change would be acceptable.

Even if it's individual or personal descsion, the main question is " is it disrespectful?" The question isn't, "are you/is it okay to change your name?" :/

Personally if your parents gave you a reasonable name then I'd see it as disrespectful but if they gave you a dumb ass name then yeah why not

Omg how disrespectful you cis scum, I identify as a xer lizardman vampire named Kerin Tosh and my mind partner is a transmonkey spiritseer named Xurlot ko' Reginald.

Pls respect this.

And it is disrespectful but still legally the choice of the name holder.

voted no, given that my name is a shitty mix between my parents' names and the city I was born in (I use my English name for things instead)

i use the matriarchal surname of a very distant relative for most unofficial things since my current surname comes from my father's stepfather, whom is an irreconcilable prat and a general fucksquat

that doesn't really count as a given name I guess, but nonetheless.

I actually talked to my mom about this once and she said it's fine with her if that's what I want.
Although I learned to embrace my name over the past few years and slowly realized that my mother gave me the name "Grace" because she truly felt like I "Grace'd" her life when I was born.
She's quite a religious person.

To me it's disrespectful, even if they were high-on-drugs or something like that, it's still something they gave to you. That won't change.
Though it's more acceptable to change your name if they were high.
