well i know some people who work in hr that tosses names they cant read or it sounds like hmm poor black sounding
 
It's sad that happened, but if having a more British name helps, he certainly wouldn't be the first... look at the Royal family the Windsor s isn't their real family name, it was changed to that because of anti German sentiment.
 
I would also like to do this trick coz I've gone through this many times.
