REASONS TO CHANGE YOUR MONIKER



Jamie Foxx
Real name: Eric Marlon Bishop
Why he changed it: When he was starting out in comedy, he noticed female comics were called first to perform during open mic nights. So he chose a gender neutral name.

Simone Luise Hardt Lyon is a Unisex name, i'm pretty sure. is a great name. I think it means god's favorite daughter. Everyone has a moniker. Your name is your moniker.

Thanks Ali \ud83d\udc1d Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee I now love my name. I guess when we are young we don't understand how a name becomes us in many ways :)

: First, thanks for the kind words, as always. Second, I'm not surprised, "they all loved" you! Third, the studies I cited are confined to USA employers, FYI. However, I would hope that global employers in the USA would appreciate and value the importance of a diverse workforce. Otherwise, talent will be lost to the competition. Please have a wonderful Wednesday, Fatima, and keep up the great work!

So much drama behind a name right! When I was in school I really never liked to be called Fatima so I kept telling people my name was Tina. Tina was one of my cousins and she seemed super cool at the time and I wanted to be like her as a teenager. Most of the people in my old office call me Tina till this day I kinda liked that name but now I have come to love my own name. Thanks to for the initial tip behind my first name to make me unique on social media :) And as a recruiter I never really assessed people on names that's just cruel. The only thing I hate and have no control is when employers ask for a specific nationality preference as they believe it will be easier to work with them or some jazz ! I never understood that logic! I have worked with 7 different nationalities and they all loved me :) :)

You make some excellent points here, Lyon. Numerous studies have shown so-called "name discrimination" among job applicants. It's sad to say, but the studies report that applicants with African-American or Hispanic/Latino names receive fewer call backs and job interviews. Moreover, my uncle changed his last name from 'Grinberg" to "Grin" partly due to alleged antisemitism and stereotypes. I never respected that. This is a sad statement on society regarding how far we still must go to reach equal employment opportunity for all on a fair and level playing field in the 21st century. So close, but yet so far. So what about YOUR name? Please remind me.
