My daughter's first name is Qingzhe, we also call her Qinging.

She entered the kindergarten today, and the teachers want every kid to have an Engllish name, since there are foreign teachers in the school.

Could anyone help me?

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Thank you, it's a beautiful name, but what do you think of Ching Ching?

She is just 3 years old, I don't want her feel confused, so if the prouncation in Chinese and English is alike, she might feel more confortable.

Ching Ching isn't an English name. In fact, it has a bit of a derogatory implication in English.
Ignorant people sometimes refer to any Chinese as a Ching Ching.

No problem. There are many, many English names to choose from.
My wife's given name is zhen but a very close English name is Jen which is short for Jennifer.
So she goes by Jen in the USA.
