Why don't Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz run for president using their real first names?

Bobby Jindal's real first name is Piyush. Piyush Jindal.

And Ted Cruz's real first name is Rafael. Rafael Edward Cruz.

Piyush, according to Wikipedia, is a Hindi name which means nectar or ambrosia.

"Ambrosia is sometimes depicted in ancient art as distributed by a nymph labeled with that name," [according to Wiki]

Well ok, I guess if I was afraid the liberal media PC jackals might depict me as a Greek nymph surrounded by bees and hummingbirds I'd change my name to Bobby too. But other than that I can't think of any good reason why they don't use their real names -- especially given the rich diversity of multicultural (and metrosexual in the case of Donald Trump) Republican nominees to chose from. Can you?
