English Names

In China students typically chose to use and English name for their “English life.”

There are many choices like Emily, Vanessa, Will and Victor. Yet there are some that really give one pause. Should I tell this student that name will only give them trouble, however slight, in the US? Should I respect their right to choose?

Well, here are some of this school’s more unusual choices:

Album, Mars, Bruins, Brand, Lucifer (glad he’s not in my class), Choco, Bee/Plane (yep, the slash is part of the name), Mars, Ocean, Zero, Tone, Snaker, Mega, Ivy (a boy), Sickey (a girl), and Zero.

Well, it is easy to remember these names.
