Names

Sunshine
Joy
Melody
Star

In London, you need to go round the back of Kings Cross Station to find girls with names like that

I like the girl I met who said "I like my Chinese name, I don't have an English name"

That's my kind of girl
"We know it's weakness, but the weakness is so strong!"

May I suggest perhaps a slight modification in the threads title to clarify?


You are right ... and I have just noticed why your wrote that .... Someone has already changed it

I am sure I originally wrote something like

Coolest (or most amusing) Western name adopted by a Chinese person

... Seems like one of the mods doesn't understand humour ...
Take me down to the paradise city, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty

No such German name exists, hombre! 'Tennis' is from French 'tenez', meaning 'hold it'.


Maybe my friend was wrong.

My wife's nephew (actually second-cousin) from Beijing took to calling himself  "Viagra".

I suggested to him that the name wasn't suitable for a young man and might cause misunderstandings with young ladies of his acquaintance. But he wouldn't take any advice and kept the name. I don't know how he is making out.

In Africa, I knew a student with the first name of "Doctor", as in Doctor Mwanga. The college administration were forced to always call him "Mr. Doctor Mwanga". I guess his parents enjoyed the name.

You know ronglimeng? You may have just hit upon an answer to a question that has been on the minds of many forum members! So he just gave himself the first name of "Doctor" did he?

Well, guess that's one way to do it. Do you know if he answered one of those internet ads that will sell a diploma if you pay enough?

Doctor Mwanga!!
