Traditional Chinese Names
Chinese English names – proof no-one should name themself
Article by Matt McMahon:
“This week saw the introduction of a class seating plan so I have most of my students’ names. Some people wonder what it would be like if you could name yourself rather than your parents doing it. I think these are proof that it is for the best that our parents pick our names. You’ll agree that some of these are very bizarre….
We have some oldies such as… Stan, Betty, Abe, Beth, Edward, Eileen, Maggy, Percy, Eunice
Every colour of the rainbow…Blue, Pink, Yellow, Green, Purple,
Some weird ones…Crystal, Fox, Frizz, Ivory, Friday, Sunday, Angel, Wing, Echo, Summer, Lucky, Ouch, Dinner, Sweet, CK, Van, Pompey, Smarty, Juice, Jacket, Wings, King, Princess, Ice,
Some just stranger ones…Yuki, Zversman, Narro, Herria, Elvis, Gandalf, Shevchenko (footballer) Alucard (Dracula backwards), ZZQ, Antalia, Freedo,
And some hilarious ones… Troy, Lucifer, Fish, Moon, Star, Fantasy, Baby, Feeling, U Know, Eminem, WC, Killer, Mad Cola, Corn, Boom, Really, Pen, KFC, Pig
And of course…Fuck.
These are the kids real names and evidence of why people should never name themselves. Having said that, at least they are original, and with the exception of my friend Fuck they have all kept their English names.”
What to see and do around Beijing
Wonder at the Great Wall, be awed by the magnificent Forbidden City, drink in the scenery from a boat on the Summer Palace’s Kunming Lake.
