It would really help if NASA was the name he was given at birth
Hell no. My real name has a lot of history and meaning to it. Dad served in Vietnam as a Navy Seabee assigned to USMC as a steelworker. Another Seabee from up north (Ohio)'s last name is my real first name.
My middle name (patron saint name) is also the middle name of my paternal grandfather.
Only thing remotely close to NASA is my last name. It's based on the name of a city in France that was a Shuttle Trans-Atlantic Abort Site (TAL) site.
