I've known quite a few South African Greek Harrys, one of whom was Harry Haramboulos, I think. Complicated surname, anyway! I don't know if Harry was his actual, given name or a nickname based on the surname to make it easier for us non-Greeks.

In my experience, Greek speakers are very considerate that way, happily calling themselves Paul instead of Apostolos etc.
