My registrar created ns1.<myname>.com, ns2.<myname>.com

 6:42 am on Apr 27, 2009 (gmt 0)

When I registered a domain name with my regular registrar and checked for new nameís WHOIS lookup I found that my domain DNServers bore my personal contact name; i.e. ns1.<mypersonalname>.com and ns2.<mypersonalname>.com, however their IPs matched with registrarís earlier DNServers. Can there be any contingency involved in this for me? Can there be any spamming or such illicit activity done through the servers and I may have to answer for that?

You should have a domain's control panel to delete those nameservers or link them to another IP's.
If you can't do this or if your hosting service just allows to host the nameservers in their IP's you will not have total control but you can't have it any if the domain is not hosted in your own server with yor own DNS service.

On the other hand, yours is the most common status for domains around the world.

Thanks Lexur!
The domain is new and idle. I have not hosted any site. I have done 'name-server changes' for earlier two names and WHOIS shows the changes. Perhaps we have no say in someone calling his server by a name, a registrar might be having number of servers and may have to name them. This server naming could be like naming a tree(!). My prime concern was other party using these servers for objectionable purposes.
