People who use or are learning BSL often choose a sign name that others can use to refer to them instead of using fingerspelling.  This is often a sign that is linked to your hobby, job, or a personal characteristic.

What is your sign name? – Record a video here and let us know.

Sorry no video yet but my "Sign name" is Deaf Boy One given to me by friends at Action on Hearing Loss (formerly R.N.I.D.), my (partial) hearing name is Pete Waller I was Deafened when a kid came up behind me and slapped both ears perforating both ear drums. Then was 1973, now I'm a Singer Songwriter writing songs about Deaf Culture with my band The DeafboyOne Project spreading the word about the beauty of Sign Language with Music online. Pleased to meet you :)

My name sign is the American sign letter K and the middle finger brushing my cheek (specifically my dimple).

 Is there a difference between American Deaf Culture and British Deaf Culture on the topic of name signs? Here we don't make our own name signs. Instead, a deaf person will give a name sign to another person. It's kind of a "rite of passage" here.
