Multinominal also known as ‘Polynominal’, ‘Plurinominal’, or ‘Pluronominal’ refers to an individual who goes by and identifies with two or more names.[1]

Those who are multinominal may for one reason or another may:

1. Use two or more names at the same time, they alternate between the ones they are most comfortable with at the time.

2. Use certain names in certain situations, this may be that they use their deadname in situation where they have to, or they may use one name with friends and another with online friends. (See Mutonominal)

3. Let others decide what name to use, this might be their friend choosing to call them one name and then another calling them another name. For example, friend A calls them Scarlet whilst friend B calls them Amy.

4. Use different names at different times, this can refer to them being fluid in how they call themself, this may or may not be fluid on a regular basis, this may or may not be due to preference.

5. Their preference for their name/s fluctuate and so use a number of different names when other names just don't feel right at that moment in time. For instance, One may use the name Harry, on Monday that individual may have a high preference, but on Friday, their preference for Harry is low and so use their back-up name of Louis if it is of a high preference on that day or they feel they need to have a name.

6. They are a system and find that all members having names are important, the body may have these names or the individual system members, or both.

7. One simply just likes to collect names. Or hoards names because they have a hoarder disorder.

One also may use this if they are multigender or they are genderfluid etc, where they feel as if having multiple names is representative of their gender.
