I've never entirely understood it, either, but it does make some practical sense. My name is hard to pronounce for many Chinese people (it's not a really weird name, but some of the letters trip them up), so I was happy to use my Chinese name in many situations. Often I'd say, "我的中文名字叫... 我的英文名字叫..." so they had both options available.

My Chinese name, if pronounced by English speaking people, would sound ...kinky to them. I don't like the idea of haing an English name either, but I couldn't risk it.
