    I realize I share my given name with one of last century's most famous terrorists ...

    Anyway, no, I'd in all likelihood not change my name if it happened to be "Osama". I'm too stubborn for that sort of thing.

    Why would he want to change his name while he can just go to countries where Ossama is a popular name?

    the founder of adidas Adolf "Adi" Dassler preferred people to call him adi rather than adolf, for obvious reasons. perhaps this ossama may have a nice nickname.

    Yes, I would change my name. Hell, I've considered changing my name before even though it's not Osama.

    I wonder if there if a person out there named Adolf Bin Laden or Ossama Hitler. If there are (one of each), who would win in a fight?
