Immigrants with anglicized names are more likely to get help from other in crucial life-threatening situations, according to a study which showed that people are inherently biased against ethnic sounding names.
Many immigrants voluntarily adopt a name similar to fit in with the new community, rather than keeping an original name.
According to a study, published in the journal Social Psychological and Personally Science, anglicising ethnic names may reduce bias towards immigrants, especially where such manes are typical.
