Welcome to Javaranch, Zhi

We prefer to use real names here in Javaranch as it has more professional appeal. Please read our Naming Policy.

Cool is in the eye of the beholder. Personally, I find Chinese names pretty cool (and much shorter than Polish ones).

Boy's or girl's name? Brian/Bonnie are favourite English names among Chinese.
Some Asians make their English names as official names when they move to foreign countries.

I have a friend who's parents immigrated to the U.S. from China. When they got here, they didn't know English. Their son (my friend) was born, so they picked a name they liked.

So, my friend is 100% ethnic Chinese, grew up 100% American, and is named "Pierre" - a VERY French name.


There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

But ironically they are not currently popular names amongst the English.
Before choosing an English name I suggest you google something like "Popular boys/girls name YEAR COUNTRY" delete either boys or girls as appropriate and change YEAR for the year you were born and COUNTRY for the country you want a popular name for. After all you want a popular name for your sex, age and country of residence.

After I had met five or six people named "David Wong" I started to see why some people of Chinese origin in the city where I live had chosen names like "Schumann" and "Rainbow" for their English names.

Good point. You certainly want to be careful before choosing the most popular name(s).
Another important factor is choosing a name you can pronounce properly and easily as some English syllables are very hard for Chinese people to pronounce.

I know a lot of Thai people and they generally stick to their Thai nicknames unless they are particularly hard for English people to pronounce and then they generally find and English name/word that is close in sound to their nickname.

Personally, I think the onus should be more on us to learn how to pronounce your name rather than on you to change it to an English one, so unless your name is particularly hard for non-Chinese speakers to pronounce I'd stick with it.

Something like "your real name"! That represents you accurately

And yeh!!! I know how to pronounce "Nga"!!
