    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?

    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.

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

    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?

    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.

    I think it's selfish to give your kid a weird or "funny" name, sure the parents may think it's cool or have a laugh over it but you could ruin your kid's life..
