Being named "Unwanted"

In India, because of the gender discrimination that is so prevelant in this society, there are girls who's names mean "unwanted" in Hindi. There are re-naming ceremonies that are taking place for girls who want to change their names. This story is sad with a happier ending in which these girls give themselves meaningful names for their much more meaningful and precious lives. http://news.yahoo.com/285-indian-girls-shed-unwanted-names-122551876.html
