Krista is my English name and it is offically used in many places.  A friend asked how did i get my English name. It just brings me back to my college life. Everything is still vivid in my memory and I just want to say that my name wasn't translated from Chinese. It was given by an American professor who once exchanged English for Chinese calligraphy with me.

I have 3 names that are English plus a surname.

My first name was chosen as it was the name of my father's best friend in the RAF.
My second name was that of my Mother's brother.
My third name is my father's second name.
Per Ardua Ad Astra

My Students always ask me to give them a nice English name. So I checked some information online, and I think it is interesting to give them names.

i am current working in a TAIwanese company and everytime i train new fresh man from college, they alaways asked me for advise on English name, i first thing i would ask is why do they want to get an English name? is it just so popular in the company or you want to make youself special to others? i have a PDF file containing a long list of English name for man and women representing different meanings, so if you know what you want to be in terms of English name, just go through the list and think about if they make you feel better, you got the hit, come on!
