I'm sure there are people who do it with the best of motives, but for me, I think it smacks of gnosticism. When someone mentions "Yeshua" or whatever similar alternative, I can't help thinking that they believe they have a special knowledge; are part of an elite subgroup of Christians that I'm not. I think Christianity should seek whenever possible to be unified and accessible, and using unfamiliar names doesn't further that aim.
