Kovu Kingsrod is a 15 year old trans boy from Norway. He makes videos about mental health and trans*/LGBT+ related things. An important part of his transition is to legally change his birth name to another one. Kovu is his chosen name, but it is not real enough of name, according to Norway. Kovu is the lion from The Lion King, and means "Scar" in Swahili. This name has deep linguistic roots and is not just arbitrarily made up.This is the name that Kovu feels most comfortable in, it is his name. It is important for him to be able legally have this name. We hereby petition The Norwegian Tax Administration to allow Kovu to change his legal name to Kovu  Please sign and share this petition!
