What's in a name?

Okay, I couldn't pick between Core Rules Questions and Game World Suggestions, cuz this is basically a Game World Question.

How do names work in a transhuman society?

Specifically, see the following example:

William Smith dies. Well, his body does. He resleeves into a female splicer morph. Does he still go by William Smith? Or does he call himself Wilma now? Or is everyone Post-Fall just named gender neutral names like Pat, Chris, Chanto, and Carvaz (the last two are made up, and so to us, would be gender-neutral, I suppose).

I'm making a character who's on their second body, and it's a different sex, so I'm wondering how to handle the naming issues.

Hmmm... yes i guess there would be a tendence to name your children gender-neutral in the Future.

in the future, everyone is named in 'leet speak. or with antiquated pop culture references.

"This is our offspring, Yodawg Bananaphone. Yodawg hasn't gender identified yet, but is dating a sweet little AGI named Icanhaz 1M1NUR8A53, who identifies as female. They're such a sweet couple. We're just glad Yodawg isn't seeing that dreadful H4XX0RZ Goatse person anymore. He was a strange child."
