Hi Jennifer,

I’m a trans person looking for masculine names for myself that have a meaning involving orange: the fruit or the color, or something similar? (I feel like i tend to find a lot more feminine ones, like clementine or amber)

Thanks!!! Have a wonderful day!!!


Hi NP,orange

Thanks for writing in! That was an interesting challenge, but I’ve come up with some possibilities.

Arancio is orange in Italian, that would be really cool. Maybe Aran for short (pronounced like Aaron)? Oren (which is commonly used as a real name) is Welsh for Orange.

Rav is Danish for amber. And if you want to do something identified with the sun, there would be Sol (Spanish/Latin) or Solen (Swedish).

Hope that helps!
