Names and surnames can often become a matter of joke, especially if you move to a different country or a culture. Something that is quite respectable in one language can be an abusive word in other. Like for instance, the word ‘Randi’ means to respectfully say ‘please come’ in Telugu but the same word is offensive in Hindi. This can happen to Indian names abroad or vice versa.
It is better if those who are really sensitive should not move to places where their names or surnames can have offensive meanings.
