What are your thoughts on changing family names to be more contemporary? I live in the US and have been doing a lot of family history research. I’d love to honor my (and DH’s) ancestors with a namesake baby, but I worry that their names are “too ethnic.” What do you think about “Americanizing” these:
[name_f]Natosha[/name_f] >> [name_f]Natasha[/name_f]
[name_m]Sebastiano[/name_m] >> [name_m]Sebastian[/name_m]
[name_f]Giuseppina[/name_f] >> [name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Amaliya[/name_f] >> [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]
Savario >> [name_u]Sam[/name_u]
[name_m]Pietro[/name_m] >> [name_m]Peter[/name_m]
Also, are there any other examples you can think of?
