I am curious how people think/feel about this.
From my perspective people don't have names. In most cases parents or grandparents are the ones that will choose a name for a baby.
But they are only choosing a name that will be attached to this person.
What means that this is just an agreement between people this in not a real fact.
With time people accept that this is their "code". Even if they don't like it.
(or they just change it). But this was never something more then agreement.
Even if you like your name you technically don't have one.
What means that a core of your personal identity is just a vague agreement.
The fact that people get nicknames also proves that there is no such a thing a real name.
