I decided to catalogue examples of engineers— primarily software developers— being asked to change a name to avoid being racist, sexist, transphobic, ableist, or otherwise bigoted. About half of these examples come from responses to my AskMetaFilter question.

Note: This list is not any sort of exhaustive or representative sample. I offer it as a starting point for anyone interested in reading more perspectives. If you find any links that should be added, please don't hesitate to send me an email.

There's a TON of 2020 Pull Requests about this, so I am going to pick some of them.
