Can hard of hearing people give sign names?


Recommended Posts

I have been speaking asl for the past 3 years, and I’m unsure as to a few sign name rules. I’ve been hard of hearing my whole life, and so has my father. I’m not deaf, but I’m also not hearing. So can I give sign names to my hearing friends? I respect lots of them and how they’ve learned asl to help me, but I don’t want to disrespect deaf culture at all. Please help, thank you!

    • Hi! Name is Mille. I know basic sign, enough to communicate but I'm pretty sure it's not grammatically correct in ASL. I can use your help if you're willing to practice with me.  
    • I'm just starting my sleep and also a slow learner . hope we can help each other

    • Hi, Shona! My name is Mea and from my Display Name, I'm a noob! My parents used Sign as a way to teach me to talk when I was younger, but that was way back when! I'm 19 years old, and I am taking ASL 1 through a university in North Carolina. (I don't live in NC, but online learning is lovely!) Just know you're not alone! :)
