Thus far I have gathered from your post:

So china does not have a rule enforcing names, but iceland has. The only place where names that we have discussed so far are enforced are currently christian majority and either European or south America whose current culture derives in recent (within a few hundred years) times from Europe. The names that are enforced are often pre-Christian (which, of course, is actually true for most `Christian' names :-)

Can anyone provide evidence that will extend this? (i.e. non-European or non-Christian culture enforcing historical names?)
