My grandfather decided he wanted to be called "Max" instead of "Markus"
some time around WWII. My grandmother became Adele" instead of Adeline,
when she came to the U.S. My own mother born in the U.S. decided she
hated the name "Elsie" and started calling herself "Alice". All these
"new" names appeared on all subsequent documents, and there were never
any legal name changes. Leslie Weinberg
