I think I probably have more friends from 'other cultures' than most
as I lived in the arab world for ten years and have spent a
considerable time in various other places too.

I personally am not upset when people elsewhere have a problem with my
name because it doesn't fit *their* norms so I don't expect them to
get all upset when the same happens the other way around.  It's
inevitable that things like this will happen, one just lives with it
or works around it.
