Nirad Ranjan Chowdhury lectured first under that name. He and Yogananda decided it was too difficult for the American Public. Yogananda suggested that the first name Nirad be changed to Nerode, among other possible suggestions. He announced in the House magazine East West in issue 6-3, Jan 1934 that "Brahmacharee Nerode will henceforth be called Sri Nerode. Brahmacharinee Nerode, his wife, who is also a Yogoda worker, will be called Srimati Nerode, and their little son, who has been initiated to Yogoda, will be known as Sri Anil." I had to deal with both names on records till 1956 when I got my PhD. At that time I got everyone to agree to a legal change of name to Nerode. This was approved by a court in Chicago. Sri Nerode taught under that name from 1934 to 1983. After receiving his training from his illustrious Yogi grandfather in an ancient Ashram in Pairakora, West Bengal, and graduating from Calcutta University with a special certificate in Sanskrit, he taught Yoga for a total of 73 years in India, Burma, southern China, and then the United States, culminating in Chicago from 1950-1983, where he trained many midwest teachers of Yoga.
