You mean they want to impress their foreign friends with their fake "Western" names?
That happens  ...

'That happens because they think foreigners can't read, write or speak Chinese.'

They are always underestimating foreigners' intelligence. Btw, they could have printed their Chinese names in hanyu pinyin to help foreigners read them.  That's just an excuse for using fake western names which they consider more impressive.

Noted that it is the same for people coming from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Malaysia and Singapore.

I fully agree with you!  Among Asians, the Chinese are the most fond of using western names; they like to imitate the West, even speaking 'chinglish' with a fake American accent!

So, another meaningless rant from pee N Poo... Do you feel better now? Unfortunately, I have to ask  ...

'Do not tell us you can memorise every pupil's name without having their names transcribed into Roman letters!'

You won't go wrong if you try, only lazy foreigners get it wrong.  Besides, there is hanyu pinyin, which helps a lot in pronouncing Chinese names; try that!

I know that, but their eagerness to display and promote their English names in everyday life instead of sticking to the names their parents so painstakingly choose for them smacks of inferiority complex!


Jack Ma is the English name of Ma Yun. But his passport will still say Ma Yun not Jack Ma. What's the big deal?

Congratulations! You have shown us that you can generalize, stereotype, and be a xenophobe, all in three short paragraphs.
Stupid people are like Glowsticks. You want to snap them in half and shake the crap out of them until they see the light.

Most do it as a sign of respect to their husband's family. You remember respect, right? It's something very few people have any more. Including you.
