Many people, it seems, feel compelled to change their names upon taking up a new religion. Indeed I believe that some organizations insist upon it at certain levels.
Am I alone in finding this practice at best pointless, and in my case irritating and off putting? When I go to an event and an obviously western speaker is introduced as Chukamuka or Dingdongbhaji, the urge to loudly sigh and roll my eyes is almost overwhelming.
And yes I did wake up in a bad mood today.
