Another "my Chinese name" topic

Recommended Posts


Let's cut to the chase, my Chinese teacher in Taiwan has given me a Chinese name, but I think it kind of sucks, it's: 唐吉

So my Taiwanese friend gave me another name, which is: 翼翔

I like the name my friend gave me, because I think it sounds much better, and it given to me by my friend.

What does everyone think? Good or bad? Sound Chinese enough? Too many feather radicals? (I like the feathers btw, but I'm no expert on what's good and what's bad in a Chinese name)

唐吉 reminds me of Don Quixote (唐吉柯德). :nono

If you like the feather radical, why don't you just call yourself 羽? Heros in Chinese history who had this name include 項羽, 關羽 (they did not win, but they are very well respected even today).

IMHO, there are too many wings (and strokes as well) in 翼翔. Two wings make a bird, four wings become an insect. :lol: I think 翔 is good, though. How about 奕翔 or 亦翔?
