It is not uncommon for people who have a name that is clearly outside the norm for their environment to change it to fit in, and to avoid bias. If not them, their parents or grandparents.

This works for AIs as well, so if Manjeet Kumar changes their name to Chad McTucket III they'll probably be treated differently.
