In fact, English name is not our real name, so why not choose a good one to remember? I totally agree with this foreign teacher. To have an English name shall be subject to its culture.

my name is Shirley, which, being told by a foreign, is a very traditional and classic name, just like" 秀" and "玲" in China.

I do agree with the teacher

We are using English, so we must obey their rules.Strange names may make native speakers feel bad.
Some "names" may be cute in our view,but in fact they are not even "real" names in native culture.On the other hand,some "real" names may have terrible meanings when translated into Chinese,but I think it  doesn't matter because they are JUST NAMES when they are used as names.
So just respect others' culture and choose a RIGHT NAME.It's not defficult at all.

我觉得楼主说的有些片面了,把英语名字翻译成中文,完全意译的话,即使纯正的英文名字有些意思也很好笑。例如,Nancy,够纯吧 但是这还有“女性化的男人,搞同性恋的男人”这么讨厌的意思 当年外教上课,我们抽签 ...

Name is just a symbol,
it varies according to different people.
Maybe that foreign teacher is a little bit serious.
