    Nimrata is a perfectly good name for anyone who is proud of their Hindi heritage.

    Pointing out that Haley is a walking self-contradiction isn't punishment. How is she being punished?

    It is your rightwing boyfriend mocking and disparaging Nimrata's first name...not me or any lefty here.

    That might be why she doesn't use her first name: Cruel xenophobic rightwing rednecks.

    Assimilate into what?




    Nimrata is neither Irish or German.
    Desiring to assimilate doesn't automatically mean that desire is forced due to racism. In some cases it may, but as I showed with the Western European examples, they also changed names, and it would be hard to prove that was due to racism

    What's cultural about going by Nikki instead of Nimrata?
    In AMERICAN culture, Nikki = cute. No one is stigmatized by being called Nikki.

    Nimrata = Weird. Foreign.

    Nimrata lends itself to being associated with the only English word that it is similar to.

    Nimrod.

    Only a foreign nimrod would saddle a girl in America with a name that sounds anything like nimrod.

    You sound like the idiot at General Motors who decided to try selling a popular US Chevrolet car model in South America with a name that was fine here in the USA but was the height of cultural ignorance in Latin America.

    The car was called the Chevy Nova.

    In Spanish, "no va" means, 'won't go.'

    In America Nikki is cute.

    Nimrata is the equivalent of this:

    And "Bobby" Piyush Jindal? He even had his official portrait "whitened up."

    Plus "Nikki" and "Bobby" sound much lighter to Southerners than "Nimrata" and "Piyush."
