I have heard that answer before, but is there a source for the answer?

I wonder if it was simply a sociological phenomena and that is why is stuck or if there was an actual idea that was being conveyed by keeping the name. As if to say it is only a temporary blessing or something along those lines.

@IsaacMoses Thank you! Although it doesn't clearly articulate who the "other Rabbis" are that hold this position. I will have to check out the Mecahber's language.

@SethJ Thanks for the encouragement, I was just trying to keep it on topic here. But Isaac I see pointed out that it has been discussed.

@DoubleAA Ok, I put the sources I am basing the question on. Thank you for the feedback. What are the Rishonim that say otherwise? Do you know off hand?
