    Default Is it discriminatory or even racist if...

    ...you name your kids with non-regional names from 'back home' and refuse to consider traditional names from the country you've moved to?

    Never group up with a retarded Dwarf; it's not big and it's not clever.

    No.
    Edit: There's no way in hell I'd name my children "Muhammad", "Abdullah", "Ching Chong Lee" or any other (IMO) strange name.

    Some guys who work at my place feel that this african co-worker is being racist for naming his new child with a Nigerian name.
    Apparently, (they say) if he wants to live in the western world, he should act like a westerner and that starts with speaking the language, and includes naming your kids with western names.

    I'm personally of the opinion that people should mind their own gd business when it comes to a parent naming their kid.

    Of course you should learn the country's language, it should be one of the requirements to become an ordinary citizen. Not that you should speak it fluently, but knowing basic grammar and stuff like that.
    The names... I don't give a shit.
    Fuck you.

    In this particular case, I think the cause was the inability to pronounce the chosen name.
    Started with 'Ade' something something.

    True there
    To OP some people are just ignorant. It up the parents and family to name their kid how they like.

    People of English/Irish/French/Italian/German descent generally stick with their ancestral names. There's just a load of em and we therefore hear those names often and have grown accustomed to them. Names like the one you mentioned are rarely used, as the populace which uses them is rather small in America, and we therefore get all pissy about it.

    Personally, I don't mind it at all. Gives me plenty of names to giggle quietly to myself about.

    What if a parent wanted to legally name their kid Christ Fucker? Your kid would have to hear it in school all the time. Would that be ok?
