Flying Dragon

I was wondering about this also. During one of my business trips to Taiwan, the company CEO that I dealt with presented me with a Signature Stamp set, as I understand it the stamps represent a chinese name.
He named me Fey Long, I am sure I am spelling the phonetic part wrong. It is supposed to mean Flying Dragon, the reason for this was, I was enforcing the company rules and policies across the globe, thereby I was a person of authority and I spend my time flying (traveling).
I was wondering, would this possibly be a valid chinese name, something a westerner could live with, or should I look for something else.

<< Live is the same for all, it is one great adventure with a deadly end. >>

Flying Dragon.....飛龍 "fei long" umm...this name is cool, sounds a bit like fantasy name though...but the characters look nice in traditional Chinese....

If you want make it a bit more like could put a family name in front of it--like "your family name"+ fei long, you could choose a partial tone of your original family name.

or you can aslo reverse the two characters...龍飛 -- long fei (dragon flying)---this name sounds very chinese...because "long" is a chinese family name...

*is addicted to names now*

For the meaning of Truth, I like '诚' better. As of another meaning, could we change it with another one like luck or something as I don't think most chinese parents would name their boys like that as it sounds a little sissy from a chinese point of view. But maybe I am wrong again here as have not been a parent before.
