    My current partner is from HK and his dad was born in the US, moved back to HK(his parents are from HK), met his mom then settled down. His mom was educated in Canada and UK. So overalls his family is pretty western in HK. He and his mom have pretty unique not so common names but his dad's name is Johnny(not even John, legally, Johnny)and his brother's name is Jason(we all know 20 Asian Jasons just admit that). At first I thought his grandparents were not good at English so they named all their children basic names, then I found out that all his uncles and aunts have fairly unique names. His father is the outlier in the family.

    My english name is Jessica, which is what I picked for myself when I was in grade one. I'll admit I regretted it slightly when I reached middle school age and my class had four different Jessicas in it XDDD. Our teacher attempting to call one of us was always hilarious.

  • mochike

    the way asian immigrants (in any english-speaking environment) give themselves western names will always be hilarious to me. our asian names are so meaningful, like we go to people whose literal job is to name other people's children to ask what we should name our future children (at least in korea) and there's like a million factors that go into each name and then we grow up and we're all either named after a famous white person, a character we like, after someone from a religious text, or chosen randomly from like nameberry LMAO like my first english name was an english royal's name, then my next english name as i transferred schools was some dude's screen name from a game i used to play, then i named myself after a singer from a band i liked

  • speicaldark

    I was in a class where the teacher announced the winner of a little competition. He said a Chinese name. We seven Chinese students looked at each other; despite how different our Chinese names are, the teacher's pronunciation could potentially fit any of them. But I know how much he tried and appreciated it nonetheless

    I had a classmate named Christiana because her parents were christians. It’s like all the parental effort goes into picking a beautiful, poetic Chinese name and for English names parents just kinda go “meh. Who really gives a shit.”

  • veyselyazici

    Kevin is a standard Asian Australian name.

  • James

    My grandma wanted my brother and I to have Mandarin names but my mom said "I don't want their names to stand out on a resume". So we got the most generic white kid names she could think of, Michael and James.

    Max Kim

    My name is max but in korea it's gim(kim) gwang jik. Means "gold, light, straight" It can be interpreted as golden beam of light, golden light of righteousness or golden lit path. I prefer the first one since I like gundam and star wars. The second one makes me sound too Asian(lol) and the last one is pretty weak

  • Jennie

    I'm white, but my auntie was adopted from Hong Kong. Her original name sounded like "Ma Mun Tong" - or at least to my grandmother's ears. However, someone in Hong Kong changed it to Man-Ching when my auntie came to America at 7 years old. But of course, with English pronunciation, it sounded like everyone was calling her a man. When she finally went for her citizenship, she changed it to Mai-Ching to sound more feminine.
