Haven't you ever had people stumble all over your name? Times change as do people. IF the name was easy to pronounce then fine....but since it will give the child problems later on....why do it? If the child lives in a non-Greek country...they will be better served by a name that they can function with. I am all for the tradition, but, people stumble all over my son's name all of the time (Vasili). You wouldn't think so,...but they do.
Furthermore, one of this child's parents is not Greek. Let's not forget that they have rights here too whether they come from one culture in particular or not.
