    It's the same among the Vietnamese I know: some continue to go by their
    Vietnamese names, while others have adopted "American" names. Of the
    latter group, only those whose Vietnamese name *very closely* resembles
    an American name tend to pick one that is even remotely close (e.g.
    Danh -> Dan, Đức -> Doug). If there is no American name that is nearly
    an exact match, almost anything goes.
