LOL! Galt is a realist on this topic, I tend to agree. Not that I agree in judging a person by his name, but why make it harder on your child to get along in the world?<quoted text>Tell that to King Hammurabi from 1792 BC. You're an idiot, which is by the way not a new phenomenon.
On the other hand, consider this: Would Galt change his name to Mohammed if he moved to Egypt? Would he be discriminated against because his name is Galt?
This is an American thing; if a name is a little different, they start freaking out about it.
