Just like you, we have our own set of names that define us; the list of our Chinese last names has never been longer. After years of using the same last names, some of us think we have lost something in our lives. Whether it’s because our given name doesn’t quite fit in with the rest of the Chinese community or because we get a lot of calls from our family that our first names aren’t really that meaningful.
A name changes how you think about your life, your interests, and your relationship. Whether you are dating a more westernized Chinese woman or a Chinese man, the name you pick can set you apart from every other person you encounter. Think about it. There are over 2,000 Chinese surnames and how often do you hear a Westernized Chinese name? New blog: The most common Chinese surname in the United States is Hong, and you will hear it often in China.
There arent many Chinese men that come from Hong Kong to live and work in the United States. Many are married to overseas Chinese women who are trained from very young age to work overseas. And its very likely that the majority of married couples will have at least 1 child from their extended family in Hong Kong or elsewhere. Old blog: The thing about Chinese surnames is that they have become such a huge part of the population, they seem to be able to influence a lot of people.
