NoteBy Danish naming-legislation, a man cannot have a woman\'s name, or vice versa. I am transgendered and had surgery over a decade ago in Denmark, and my legal status was changed even before I was out of the hospital. This has been the case for Denmark since sex changes became an option. Denmark's historic new law allows citizens to self-determine their own gender identity without any requirements for medical or psychiatric intervention.
