Freetha => Miniar
I thought about it for a while and decided here was the place to post this.

As some of you may have noticed (or not, no biggie) all these treads posted by "Freetha" have suddenly changed to being posted by Miniar.
There's a perfectly simple explanation for this and that is, I have had my nickname on the forum changed.
Freetha is the phonetically accurate (or the closest thing to accurate) spelling of Fríða (short for Hólmfríður) in English. I am biologically female, so my name is a girly one, in fact it's actually what "Belle" in Beauty and the Beast is called in Icelandic and yes I was teased for it when I was young. "I" on the other hand consider myself more male than female and am even actively considering transitioning and getting over my confusion and issues and self-consciousness regarding that has had the side effect that I am more comfortable with "Miniar" than "Freetha". So, I humbly asked for a change of name and am feeling all warm and fuzzy on the inside to have received it.

Hope this doesn't cause any confusion, my icon's the same and my way of posting's not about to change.. so it (seriously... hopefully) won't be a problem at all.

Thanks again.. thanks heaps.. really.. means a lot to me.. ^^

Took me a fair bit by surprise just how much of a difference it made to me, to be honest. I really seriously appreciate it.

Honestly it was odder for me seeing your name as Freetha and not Miniar. Glad you got the change you wanted <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Glad it worked out for you <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_e_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile --> I was like Sera and found it odd to see Freetha after first knowing you as Miniar
