This from the User of the Day:
Tenzin Gyatso is the fourteenth and current Dalai Lama, and as such, is often referred to in Western media simply as the Dalai Lama, ...

Is this for real?

Highly unlikely of course.
Rather someone who is abusing the name of Dalai Lama.

Gentlemen, I have met two Tenzin Gyatso [etc's]. Neither abused the name. Neither were the man himself. He had the birth name Lhamo Thondup.

Traditionally, personal names are bestowed upon a child by lamas, who often incorporate an element of their own name. In the Tibetan diaspora, Tibetans often apply to the Dalai Lama for names for their children. As a result, the exile community has an overwhelming population of boys and girls whose first name is "Tenzin", the personal first name of the 14th Dalai Lama.
