Just heard a friend of mine introduce himself as "amyaat" which was too funny. Granted that nepalis want to make it easy for amricans to call them but its funny when they happily massacre their own names to be accepted.

Amit becomes Amyaat
Anil becomes Enil
Arun becomes Erin
Binay becomes bi-naa-yay
Bhupesh becomes Bupaaish
Sujan becomes Shoejaaan
Amrit becomes Emrit
Sunil becomes Saniel
Puskar becomes Pushcar
Kiran becomes Kee-ran
Samir becomes Sam or Syammer

more later. ..

How about 'Shahi baba'?

To be reminded of 'Sai Baba' which is spelled with patalo Sa, and a whole new addition of 'hi' in lieu of just 'i', they come up with totally new name. I am like why do you have to do that? Sai Baba is easy enough for Americans. 

And when someone question that they say....'Oh, that Sai Baba, no no, I have nothing to do with that' 'The truth of the matter is my last name is actually Shahi and I like people calling me Baba'. 'Because that makes me cute.'

I agree with you, dude. People come up all sorts of random things..... I 'stopped' paying attention to these nowadays.

IDK haha Shahi Baba is my username here nothing to do with real name

Lot of times when funny things happen we just laugh it off and you will forget about it for the rest of your life LOL thats why I decided to write it down.

Kancho Ryan for Narayan is cool and makes sense. Otherwise it would probably be "nah - ryan". Bad for Badri is a bit excessive though! but whatever works.

Sajhamitra I don't think you read the topic correctly. I am talking about how Nepalis call themselves. I am not talking about how Russell Peters calls us.

I remember one incident when a guy changed his name from राजकुमार to SonofKing or so (not prince)

Mostly first 2-3 letters are used

I don't see any unusual of nepalese changing their name in here...it's not only nepalese but other races too that shortened their names

William = Bill
Manuel = Manny
Robert = Bob
Richard = Dick ( I am still confused with this)
Edwardo = Ed

what a nonsense thread?? Who cares... just be proud of what you are. Make them work hard to get your name correctly. Take pride on your identity... who you are.
