Chinese name for business purposes


Recommended Posts

Hey all,


my sister works in Kenya in some sort of big construction-related project (that apparently hasn't been put on hold due to COVID, I'm shocked. Hopefully she'll get the hell out of there soon).

However, she says she often has meetings with Chinese people and that she would like to choose a Chinese name for herself. 

She asked me for advice as she knows I study Chinese - her name is "Cristina" and we often shorten it to "Cri" so I'd go with 克里 -  but I'm not too confident about it. 

Suggestions / alternatives?


How do you think I'd go down culturally, wouldn't it be a bit weird to know about absolutely nothing about China and still come up to someone and introduce yourself with a Chinese name?


Thanks and good quarantine to everyone
