  1. Hi! I'm an ASL 4 student in college. I have learned a lot about the cultural rules behind name signs (be they arbitrary or descriptive) but amazingly, even thou I have had four semesters of asl, I have never been given a sign name. I understand that a name sign should be given to you by a deaf person, but my professors and the people I have met at events have never given me one. I don't want to come across as rude so I want to know as much about this subject as possible. So I have a question... Is it considered rude in deaf culture to flat out ask someone to give you a name sign? Is it better

My plan is to go back to school and become certified. I don’t have much experience with Deaf Culture, but I know a good bit of textbook information about it. I have had several interactions with Deaf people, including customers, who I have interpreted for, to take and order. Since I don’t have many interactions with the Deaf, I don’t have my Sign Name yet. I'm not sure exactly where I want to in
