I  wonder whether expats want a Chinese name, if the answer is yes, where your Chinese name come from?

from the need to lose your identity once you get there. It's the only place where you need to change your own name, and where locals need have an "English" name to ease the pronunciation for their visiting white masters, despite not being another British colony.

I am not an expat, but have been to China many times.

I was given a Chinese name by some TW friends when I first started visiting China.

Great Question you ask

Interested what the Expat's say............If it's believable not much of it is
