Change Your Name

Source unknown

A man in the Army of Alexander the Great who was also named Alexander, was accused of cowardly actions. He was brought before Alexander, who asked what his name was.

He replied softly, "Alexander."

"I can't hear you," the ruler stated.

The man again said, a little louder, "Alexander."

The process was repeated one more time, after which Alexander the Great commented, "Either change your name or change your conduct."
