Curious to see answers to this one. I cannot wait to change my surname.
You got it I’m gonna change to this.
Oh right… I just re read your post… I’m sure your surname is OK!
I had an Indian friend in university named Nava, I think its short for Navaneethan. He helped me a lot in my studies.
It’s not to be honest i got bullied for it. My partner is the surname you mentioned so I pick this. And then my whole name isn’t uncommon anymore.
I had another Indian friend and Patel was his family name. He said Patel family name is too popular.
Yeah Patel 15555
Haha… My psychiatrist had gupta in her surname, yea… She was cool
Oh fair enough. Yea if it makes you feel better… My sister also had a name change she feels so much better
I see the name Singh a lot
My high school friends (twin brothers) last name was - Harneja
oh wait i mistaken i thought it said first name. for surname id say razim or rahim. idk how common it is but its the first that comes to mind
I really like the Indian name Varun… But that is a first name.
Oh yea and also,
Gandhi for surname
I think mohammed is more of a middle Eastern surname?
I might be mistaken. Sigh.
I still think it’s quite a common surname in India. Like Singh is considered a Sikh surname of Punjabis but a lot of Sikhs are Indian.
I’ve seen quite a few Patels in the US. Some of the Indian businessmen I’m acquainted with use an americanized nickname that is similar to their real name, or go by their initials.
My psychiatrist is Indian, I like her surname
