Signs for BIDEN, JOE

There are a few possible or proposed name signs, NOT yet conventionally adopted. For now, use fingerspelling.

Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. (1942-present) is an American politician who served as the 47th vice president of the United States from 2009 to 2017.

Because it's a short name, fingerspelling has been used for the last many years until he became President-elect in November 2020. Then name sign has been discussed in the Deaf community.

December 2020: A name sign was proposed by Patricia M. Lowry on November 12, 2020. Her rationale based on the below receives positive responses; unfortunately, the sign has another connotation that is negative that receives disagreements.

Lowry's rationale for the sign she proposed: 1) Biden had lost three loved family members: his wife, one-year-old daughter, and son; 2) the symbol of E in his BidEn logo in his campaign; 3) Biden gifted his American flag pin to a boy named Shamar at a barber shop in February 2020. He put the pin onto the boy's shirt. In summary, all those three main reasons connects to the heart. Thus, the name sign.

There were other proposed name signs. So far, there has been no agreed name sign. Use fingerspelling.
