By Any Other Name?

It is a cliche by now to say that China is changing rapidly. It has very quickly plugged into the world's economy and also the larger world culture, including the use of English.

Here is a funny clip about some rather unusual English names that some has adopted in Beijing. I like how Sophie takes a dig at her own translated name too, and her mandarin is impressive too.

Didn't we in Singapore go through a phase like that with our names?
