I hear of people who adopt from other countries then give their kids 'american names'
why? if they already have a name, why change it?
I'm not talking about babies, I mean kids as old as 9 in some cases.
what do you think?

We are in the final stages of foster adoption and have had all 3 children since birth and broke the rules heavily by giving names and using them before the end of our journey. Of course it is all working out in our favor. The reason we changed their names: We had 2 boys with the same first name!!! And a girl with a really bad first and middle name. There was no getting around it! When we go to the dr and have therapy appts we all get confused on who we are talking about as they are still using birth names until everything is finalized.
I know this doesn't pertain to the age group specified in the original question, but there are some names given from birth parents not in their right state of mind and some children dream of what names they would like to have and get their wishes granted on adoption day. :)
