I think it's a good idea. I should point out that I am not Indian (Not Asian-Indian anyway), and believe in living your life like you only get one.

You can try to please your parents and hang onto old family customs for their sake, and it's a noble thing. But, at some point you just have to be what you want to be.

But a cautionary note: Changing your name won't change what you have inside.

Sincerely
