It’s factually incorrect to disclose a trans person’s old name and say it’s “the name they were born with”.

People aren’t born with names. We are given names. Sometimes a given name is like that ugly, ill-fitting sweater Grandma gave you for Christmas: You might smile and pretend to like it, but as soon as she leaves, that thing’s going back to the store.
