Selecting an appropriate English name in China

The Importance of Selecting a Good English Name

International studies have proven that what your name is can have a big impact on your success in business and socially. Choosing the best English name could be the difference between being rich and poor. For more information about why you should choose the right English name click here.

There are many weird, inappropriate and bad English names in China.

Since living in China I have been surprised by how many people have English names that are not appropriate. Some sound like porn stars, some sound like bathroom air fresheners and others are just weird. Your English name is your choice, but I would suggest choosing a name that will help make you successful if you travel, live or work in the west, or just meet with English-speaking people.

Why I Help Chinese People Choose a Good English Name

Chinese people have been very kind to me since I have lived in China. In return I would like to help them for free to choose a good English name so they can be successful in English-speaking countries and working and making friends with English-speakers in China.

I have lived, worked and travelled in English-speaking countries in North America, Europe and Australasia so I have a good understanding of which English names are most suitable.

After personally recommending a suitable English name for more than 1,000 Chinese, the day has come to throw in my hat. Unfortunately I just don't have enough time to continue the increasingly popular service. I'd recommend visiting this great site, The Meaning of Names, to find a suitable name. Good luck!
