Her mother's first name was Audrey, of Edmonton.

Kathryn Dawn was k.d.'s full name, also born in Edmonton in 1961.

Isn't proper to list her name as Kathryn Dawn on her profile or was her name listed as k.d. on her birth record? Thanks
Doesn't it look like this because it's a private profile? Not sure actually which names are listed in this case, but looks like it's displaying Preferred Name followed by initial of the Middle Name. I mean, the profile manager may have listed Kathryn as Proper First Name and we can't see it.
The profile lists her name (first middle) as Kathryn Dawn and her preferred name as K.d.  ... note that the K is capitalized ,,, grrr ... I posted a complaint many moons ago about Wikitree changing what was typed (should be k.d.) but to no avail.
Thanks for making the attempt, Bob. Love k.d.

Great ... I haven't gotten het mother's maiden name but am very happy to have this person I admire so much also added to the LGBT community on WikItree ... I mean we are (in or outside of the closet) appr. %10 of the world community and the person next to me on the alfabetical list is Oscar Wilde ...!?!

I just added the LGBT Category to a few profiles

Thank you for this comment, Philip. You have inspired me to create this profile.

Thanks Isabelle, for the compliment; makes one feel that not all is in vain.

Just noticed that Elton John himself is not in the LGBT category. Message has been posted on the profile.

Thanks, Philip, for bringing this category to our attention. Will add it to some profiles today.

Thanks, Karen. I will see what I can find on  Audrey Beebe Lang

From this obituary it seems k. d. lang's maternal grandparents may be Guy Bebee and Myrtle:
