I am a senior in high school, and I'm applying for naturalization. I'm considering a first name change. I'm Asian and have a pretty hard to pronounce first name. I've heard having a "foreign" name might put a distance between a doctor and her patients. If I have a name change, I'll change it into my baptism saint name in Latin form, so it's really easy to pronounce. Another benefit of this change is I won't have to correct other people for mispronunciation all the time or see people misspelling my name. So in your opinion, should I have a first name change? Just want to gather some opinions before making my decision.
