Heidi and Spencer adopt "Indian names"

Speidi--We've Given Ourselves Indian Names ...Heidi Montag has altered her identity yet again--sans plastic surgery this time--after she and Spencer Pratt decided to give themselves "true native-American names" in an effort to become more spiritual.

So ... goodbye Heidi and Spencer ... hello White Wolf and Running Bear, respectively.
Comment:  These are really lame names...but no worse than the ones chosen by any New Ager or wannabe.

The idea that names will make them more Indian, and being Indian will make them more spiritual, is doubly stereotypical and stupid. Try going to church, or whatever your ancestors did, if you want to get in touch with your spiritual side.

TMZ previously caught Naomi Campbell and Jessica Simpson in Indian faux pas.

I really cannot understand the media's fascination with Speidi.
