    I would assume that a lot of them had the same or similar names to white people - this can help them when it comes to getting on in life.

    More to the point, do Asian names become old-fashioned over the decades? - as a white person, I wouldn't know much about it. Do elderly Asian people have names that would sound old-fashioned by younger Asians?
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    There was a Rastafarian character in Grange Hill, called Glenroy Glenroy!

    The answer to that is yes. Asian names change over the decades.

    I wouldn't have known that myself of course.
