Now, a proper, American name would be something along the lines of 'Sherman MacIntosh'

I completely disagree ^^ That's just ridiculous!
The whole statement is stupid.
What's up with everyone having to learn Chinese? That's far from LEARNING Chinese, just some pronunciation. Is that so much of a bother?
Why do asians have to adjust to the liking of Americans just because they find it a little difficult?
Heck, they wouldn't even be able to pronounce my surname properly at all, and I'm European. As if I would change my name to make it '' easier '' for others, it's a real bad excuse. People it's n o t t h a t h a r d.

Let us compare an Asian name with a typically English name:

Asian:

Wang Zhi You

English:

Bartholomew Glyndwr

As you can clearly see, it is much easier to pronounce the English name than it is to say the gibberish above.

Actually we don't. Not everyone is able to curl their tongue, and out of those only a few are able to twist it. this is based on your genetic code and you can't learn to do it however much you try, just like you cant will your eyes to be different colour (no contacts doesn't count)...This doesn't necessarily impair your ability to pronounce a name though...

Ah! Some car brands should change their names because they're so hard to prounce!

Peugeot. Who ever guessed that it's pronounced "Pew-j/shyo" (French), rather than "Pew-giot"??
Hyundai. "Hi-yoon-dai"? "Hyun-day"? The correct Korean pronounciation is "Hyon-dae" (Korean).
Nissan. Shouldn'really cause much problems, but I've heard this on New Zealand radio: "Nissin"... idiot! "Knee-san", "Nissaaan". The correct Japanese pronounciation is "Niisaan".
Subaru. Soo-ba-roo. It's Japanese.

In Japan; if you're a foreigner they want you to change your name to a japanese one so do the same thing there.
My ex-boyfriend/best friend told me that since he's spent most of his life in Japan

Really, name pronunciation is far from actually learning Chinese.
Why is it only the Asians? Why not ask everyone to change their names?
Names are unique and that shouldn't be taken away just because someone is having trouble with the pronunciation.
Since when did people become so lazy? Learning is not a bad thing!
Its just ridiculous!
