I can see their point, though.
Client fronts up, sees the name "Dominiak" and thinks "Hmmm, foreigner. Not quite sure"
Especially if your first name's "Sergei" or "Balyak" or similar.
Change your name to "German"
Just like Aussie Bruce or Pom Keith.
"Oh, GERMAN Dominiak. A LOCAL. That's OK then"
The chappy at the bottom of the list has his own problems, of course.
Folks turn up in his office, bowing and curtseying, thinking he has regal connections or similar....
