change name for college?
I was wondering if you guys can give me advice on whether I should change my name or not? Background: I have a very ethnic(and i guess unique(im the only person found throuh googling my name)) name that has a spelling making it hard to deduce the pronounciation so it's butchered 99% of the time. I never got an "American name" because my original name kinda stuck and because I grew up in a small school district where everyone knows you.However, recently I got advice from a family friend to change my name to make it easier for college professors+meeting people. will a name change be beneficial or no? thanks!
