Why Chinese Shouldn't Have Christian Names...

One bad habit that I possess is I am overly sensitive to names that sound awkward or dirty. I would self-indulgently giggle (most of the time uncontrollably) to my heart's content. Please stop shaking your head! I know I have been very mean! But I just can't help it especially when it really tickles!

So, to all current and future parents out there, please be serious enough and extra careful when you are naming your child. Give him/her name that is meaningful and that would make him/her walk tall. Never make him the laughing stock that would adversely affect his self-esteem.

Avoid these names, please if you can:

Anne Chang (Mandarin)-Dirty

Anne Chin (Mandarin) - Keep quiet

Faye Chen(Mandarin) - Dusty

Carl Cheng(Hokkien) - Buttock

Monica Cheng(Hokkien) - Touching your buttocks

Lucy Leow(Hokkien) - You are dead

Jane Tan(Mandarin) - Frying eggs

Suzie Leow(Hokkien) - Lost till death

Henry Mah(Mandarin) - Hate your mum

Corrine Tai (Hokkien) - Poor fellow

Paul Chan(Mandarin) - Bankrupt

Nelson Tan(Mandarin) - Bird laying eggs

Leslie Tong(Mandarin) - Rubbish bin

Carmen Teng (Hokkien) - Leg hair long

Connie Mah(Cantonese) - Call your mother

Danny See(Hokkien) - Squeeze you to death

Rosie Teng (Hokkien) - Screws and nails

Pete Tsai(Hokkien) - Nose droppings

Macy Koh(Cantonese) - Never die before

Harry Kok (English) - You know what I mean
