My coworker's adult daughter is named Barashit. It was fine when they lived in Israel, but when they emigrated she changed her name to Genny (short for Genesis).
My MIL loves to tell the story of a patient she had whose Hindu name sounded like "a rash on my booby." Not sure if it is true, but there you go.
It is sad that some names just don't translate, but it is a fact. Anyone else know of any?
Anyone know which English names are bad in other languages?
