I think it is stupid to judge people based on names. I had a very memorable maiden name. Alot of times people thought I was joking when I told them. Even though it could be embarrassing, I had a hard time giving it up when I got married (yes, I know I didn't have to, but I like that tradition). I don't think it ever kept me from getting a job, or my unmarried sister. Now, my other sister is married to a hispanic man and has a very hispanic last name. If someone were to look at her resume and they were racist, they may throw her resume out. But she is not in the least hispanic. We are "European mutts" a little bit of this, a little bit of that.
