The creative girl name (CGN) is the name of a child’s first name.
It is the second most commonly used name in Canada, behind only the girl’s first.
According to the Canadian Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (CCMEC), CGNs account for approximately 8 per cent of all child’s names in Canada.
They are often used as a substitute for female names for girls.
In Canada, many people use the name CGYG to refer to children born on the first day of October.
The term CGYGD is a colloquialism for ‘creative girl’.
This is a form of gender-neutral name, but is often used by those who identify as transgender or gender-nonconforming.
However, the CGYGN can also be used as the name given to a gender-variant child.
For example, a CGYGA may be used by parents of a boy born on January 4, 2017, but can also also be given to children who are not yet born, as opposed to the usual boy’s name.
In this article, we’ll explore the creative name CGN, how it is used by some transgender and gender-conforming individuals, and what it can teach us about gender identity.
