NOW Asks Ndamukong Suh To Change His Name - "Too Violent" Says Prez O'Neill

National Organization of Women president Terry O'Neill stated Saturday that NOW has requested that former Husker Ndamukong Suh change his name before the upcoming NFL draft. 

"It's too violent" said O'Neill. 

"I understand that football is a violent sport, but the idea that we could be looking at a future NFL star whose name represents a crude instrument of death is more than a little disconcerting to me." 

O'Neill was referring to the fact that "Ndamukong Suh" translated means "House of Spears". 

"What if we have fathers demanding that their sons are named in the same way? Do we really want an America full of boys named 'Nine Millimeter Johnson' or 'MP5 Smith'? That's not a country I want to live in. We'd like him to send a message to fathers that violence should not be tolerated under any circumstance." 

When asked for a possible replacement, O'Neill had a suggestion. "Ndamukong Beludi", which, when translated means "House of Muffins". 

Suh was unavailable for comment as he prepares for the NFL draft, but his agent Roosevelt Barnes dismissed any potential name change, stating "I think he's fine as he is." 

However, Barnes did have  his own suggestion. 

"We (Suh's agents) think 'Ha Suh' would be a good choice."

'Ha Suh' translated? 

Sudden death.
