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!
