Speaking of names, I find it amazing that some parents would go all out to find the suitable name for their newborn. Some of them would look for some "wise men" or "consultants" just for this matter. Yup, as parents, we would want the best for our kids. However, I certainly find it amusing that some of these parents would actually not call their kids by these so-called suitable names given by their "wise men" or "consultants". Instead, they end up calling their kids by some fancy Christian names (like Kent or Barbie) which are not even registered in their birth certificate! D'uh...why go through all the hassle of looking for the best and then not practising it? Aren't you supposed to be proud of the names given by these "consultants"? (a point to ponder...okay;))
As for us, the name-hunting process was very much simple. We had only three criterion in mind: 1) it must have a good meaning in Mandarin; 2) it must not sound offensive in English & Malay; 3) preferably, it sounds like a Christian name (eg: You Jin = Eugene). I looked through the Mandarin- English dictionary to do the name-hunting. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any Mandarin names which agrees with the third criteria and catches my fancy. Someone suggested this name: Wee Lee. OMG...No way, Jose. LOL!
