Interesting, thanks. I am both transgender and a parent and had both experiences: choosing a new name for myself and choosing, with their mother, my children's names. For me, as you suggest, I tried out a variety of names and was in no hurry. But that may be because I was not 'out' yet and had some freedom to play with different names.
