Choosing a Name?? FtM
 
I'm trying to choose out of three names and I'm just looking for advice. Currently they're Miles, Norman, and Rhys and I've been using Miles while claiming the other two are my "middle names" to people I'm out to. But in truth I'm indecisive and I'm questioning what I really want to be called.
I chose Miles because I like it and it's the name of a video game character I like. Honestly I don't see anything wrong, I just... don't know. Sometimes I question if I'm uncomfortable or just getting used to it
Norman was one I just came up with and most people tell me I "look like a Norman" (I agree). I also like it.
Rhys is the name of my favourite video game character (whom I relate a lot with) and I love it's uniqueness.
I'm looking for something not too common and that I'm comfortable with being called all day. I think the problem is that these three are just too good and I can't settle on one, and I still haven't gotten to hear myself be called any of them too much (the only one some of my friends are getting used to is Miles, and that's it). And it's a huge task because I certainly plan with being stuck with this for the rest of my life.
Does anyone have pointers on how to figure out which name satisfies oneself? Please don't suggest anything different unless you think it's an extremely good idea, because I'm very attached to these three (it took me long enough to narrow down the list)

Based on what you've said, I would go with Miles.

Your name is an important part of your identity. Naming yourself after a video game character might seem cool now but in several years from now it probably won't have any amount of significance.

Quick Note!! Idk if this is the right place to put this, but a lot of people are pointing out that I literally chose video game character names. I am very aware of that! :D I've actually thought that over a lot, and even if later on I don't care for the characters I still love Miles and Rhys anyway! Just thought I'd emphasise that no, I'm not choosing names purely because of characters.
A lot of people seem to like Miles lol
Thank you everyone for your replies!!

I have been friends with a Miles for a long time. I always say we have Miles to go as friends. I love the name. And he's a great friend.

In my honest opinion I like Miles the best and Norman second but the video game name to me would be better off as a nickname instead of your new legal name

I like Miles and Norman but I am not crazy about the name Rhys.
