Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

I'm happy to hear that you are satisfied with your life; it's not such a common phenomenon. Of course even so you should always be looking for ways to improve, and a Jewish name is one of the 3 merits for which the Jews deserved to be redeemed from Egypt. One who is performing a good deed need not worry that it will cause him ill results, and certainly not regarding one's mazal, because a Jew who keeps the Torah is not influenced by mazal.
