I wish that Chinese people would not take English names. Be proud of who you are. Be proud of where you came from. With a little practice, most native English speakers will be able to pronounce your real name. Not to mention, some English names that people choose are not actually names. I had a Chinese student at English camp take the name "Dinosaur". One of my former co-workers took the English name "Watermelon". Her real name was much more beautiful.
