Read What Does It Mean When Your Teacher Changes Your Name? at https://rethinkingschoolsblog.com/2017/08/07/what-does-it-mean-when-your-teacher-changes-your-name/amp/
It always shocks me how many of my friends and their children assume a “US” name because they don’t trust that others will use their names correctly. I also find it interesting how children pick a name. A Chine friend, for example, picked “Sunny” because she wants others to feel that she bring a warm and sunny disposition to her surrounding.
