    1. Very unprofessional post by the company. Mana wait ooooooo! That name is so ghetto - parents please be mindful of the names you give your offspring because it might affect them greatly in them future.

      I have nothing against English names but I hate it when Nigerian parents give their kids names like latesha, Mercedes, etc

    4. Adanna How’s her name Ghetto ? Is “Adanna “ any better ?

    5. Adanna, You almost seem ignorant. My middle name is Mercedes, which has Spanish origin, and among other meanings, it also means abundance of Mercies. And No, it doesn't sound Ghetto. Actually, People seem to intrigued when they hear it. Let's try to do better, Please.

    1. Wrong to? The company ... their policy

      Employment is based of certain criteria and they have every right to exercise that in making a decision.

      Harrods, do the same with their employment screening too, so why is this issue only coming to light now.. next!

  3. Of course certain kinds of name can limit your being accepted for certain job placements. This Korean guy whose name was 'Phuck' kept getting turned down until someone advised him to consider changing his name to something less suggestive. He had to go with 'Paul' and got the very next job he applied for. That girl up there has a name that sounds like what I used to hear on The Jerry Springer show...... Nothing wrong with shortening it to 'Hermie'if the job is worth it.

    1. Beht if she goes by Hermie as you have advised, you people will still come and say her name is suggestive of a disease called herpes.

    2. So, she should shortened her name and lose her indentity..... If I can remember, someone called Bush was ones a president of USA.

      Those ones will always speak/write English in Benin even if they are in the North Pole.

  4. What the company did was wrong on all levels. Her name has nothing to with her ability to do job. The job is more important not her name! These employers sef. They will finally employs someone with a cute name that wont be able to deliver.

  5. But the name is kinda strange tho. Well, I thank God for my name sha. I don't have an English name but my native name carry weight

    1. You will be suprised. It’s not about weight, maybe if you are looking for a job locally then it might not count, but a job with an international presence it will matter.

    2. Modella the same way "that kinda name is strange" to you is the same way your native name is strange to them. If faced with the same employer you'll probably receive the same email she received.
      Some employers here are racist to the core I tell ya, immediately they see a name that is domestic, or suggestive black name they'll toss that resume. They didn't do it because of the name, they did it because she is black. White people bear names like bush, river, forest, demon and a lot more troubling names but no one is rejecting their resumes for it.

  7. Most Caucasians are full of name shaming black people.

    My former boss was always fond of calling me different English names, I corrected him a lot of times, even my other colleagues also corrected him but he refused to oblige.

    One morning, I came to work and greeted him addressing him by a strange name and he just stood there, staring at me while I walk away.

    He never tried addressing me by another name again.
    As easy and popular as my name is, I don't expect anyone to forget it.

    No one has the right to question another person's name.... As difficult as these Europeans names sounds, I still try my best to pronounce it right. But, they are so lazy to learn to pronounce other natives names.

  10. Please before you say something crazy know that black people's names are their identity. African American people suffered and are still suffering severe identity crisis as a result of slavery. I use to think their names were funny until I befriended one of them at my job, and one way or the other I discovered that their names are actually unique to them and it's their way of creating identity. The way most of them name their kids is by taking two letters from moms name two from dads name and either grandma or grandpa's name. They do so as a way of remembering and holding on to their family tree, because during slavery due to separation of fathers and mothers and siblings from one another they devised it to remember themselves no matter what. If you meet a black person with one of those names ask them where their name is from, and they'll tell you something like my grandma's name is Tracy, my mom's name is queen and my dad's name is Andre so they gave me Trequan.

    1. Thank you very much for this comment, at least, many of us are now enlightened. Even though, I have always know that their names are their identity but I never knew it has a very important meaning to them.

  11. Guys, this here is fake news. There's no legit company/ business that will ever respond to a job candidate in this way. Think about it: This is grounds for a billion dollar lawsuit, more so, in print waiting to happen. Even more, oyibo will kill you with kindness, naw before you know what's happening. Nah, its all hogwash. WINGS

  12. Actually in my experience and the experience of my friends and family, ethnic names like Chimamanda, Olabisi Obiageli, chukwuma, wale etc are preferred in corporate America. No one will tell you but names like Nigeriana, Kenya, Porsha, Tequila etc will always count against you. It’s sad that Nigerian stars are now naming their kids Jayden, etc. Those are protest civil rights names by African Americans against the oppression of racism and Jim Crow. Look at most Nigerians that have done well in sports, industry, corporate America etc. They have ethnic names. The system groups us as the single most successful ethnic group with the highest household income in the USA. Why are we abandoning our Nigerian names? Corporate America is very comfortable with our local names and those of Asians but because they know African Americans protest with their names, they unfortunately do this which is unfair and ungodly. My take is, why Name a person Mercedes or Porscha or Nigeriana. Even those of us with Nigerian ancestry won’t. Employment is at will and employers don’t owe you any explanation as long as they are following the labor laws in the state and those of the federal government. It’s a sad reality of western life. Be comfortable in your skin and with your name.
