  • my name is not.

  • Let's assume I ask for your name.

  • What is your name?

  • My name is a lean, but I never heard that name before.

  • So instead I call you Alan.

  • Nice to meet you.

  • A lean.

  • Soon enough you will get.

  • My name is not Alan.

  • It's a lean.

  • This may sound funny, but it happens to all of us.

  • Our names get messed up all the time.

  • But what if I told you that the world map has the same problem?

  • Take Kenya, for example.

  • This country is named after a mountain.

  • When a British person came to visit, the local said This is Mount Heating Yaga.

  • The British man couldn't pronounce it so, he said.

  • From now on, this is Mount Kenya and because off that mistake, an entire country now has a different name on the world map in Madagascar, I saw a beautiful country on Lee to learn that it's name is a mistake.

  • Marco Polo thought this was a Mogadishu, Somalia, and he misspelled that word to Madagascar.

  • And now the entire nation has to go by that name because off another mistake in the US, I went to Nebraska to meet the American Indians, but they're not Indians.

  • Columbus didn't know where he landed.

  • He thought he was in India.

  • But in reality he was in America.

  • So he labelled everyone off these guys Mother tribe of the Sioux Nation.

  • I mean, I know how it feels because it happened to me, too.

  • When I first went to the United States as a fresh immigrant, I told my roommate from Wisconsin that my name was new science.

  • He thought loose ire was too complicated.

  • So he called me not instead, just like rapper.

  • I hated that name.

  • But turns out NASA is not just a rapper.

  • It also means people in Arabic.

  • So I decided to keep that name and start.

  • I got lucky with the name change, but many others did not.

  • And now they are taking action.

  • These people didn't like their country name.

  • It was cold salon by the British.

  • So they changed it.

  • And now it's Theo.

  • People in India didn't like the British name Bombay.

  • So they changed it.

  • Now it's moment by indeed.

  • Now people change the city.

  • Name Saigon.

  • Toehold G men.

  • Slowly but surely, countries are standing up to their real names and people are too.

  • Now, I require my closest friends to call me No, sire, because that is my real name.

  • This may sound trivial, but it's a big deal to a lot of people because nothing is more powerful than being able to control your See you next week.
