What’s my Chinese name?
That’s something I’d get quite often from friends who are learning Mandarin Chinese that doesn’t already have a Chinese name.
They would give me weird names that sound like and looks cool that totally doesn’t make sense from Chinese name generators.
How the Chinese Name Generator Works
Most Chinese name generators are useless. Chinese name generators will give you a name based on random characters that sound like Chinese, and a good overall meaning in Chinese. However, they don’t make sense to Chinese speakers.
Imagine a native Chinese speaker uses an English name generator, and he or she gets a name like HILL WATER POWER.
I’d strongly suggest that you don’t do any of the followings to get yourself a Chinese name:
- Use Chinese name generators
- Google and make one up yourself.
- Ask non-native speakers for help
The best way to get yourself a Chinese name is to ask a native Chinese speaker to help.
If I want an English name, it only makes sense to ask someone who speaks English. Get my point?
It’s quite common for those who are taking Mandarin classes to have their teachers give them a Chinese name. These teachers will try to get to know their students then provide them with a name that fits them. Some teachers may give Chinese names to their students during the first day of class, but from what I know, that can be disastrous because you’ll get Chinese names that don’t fit you.
If you’re not taking Chinese classes and only learning it freely on your free time, you can get help from a native speaker instead. That would be the perfect solution.
Once you get your Chinese name, I recommend asking them what your Chinese name mean and how you write it. Get them to write it down for you and teach you how to write it too.
