Attention Chinese parents...

Please give your children decent English names! I read an article in the New York Times today regarding the increasing number of Chinese musicians studying western classical music. There was a picture of a girl from Hong Kong who is studying at the Juilliard. Her name is -- Poony Poon. Ahhhhh! Chinese parents, please, for God sake, consult someone who speaks English well before you give such names... Imagine 200 years from now, the New York Philharmonic opens its season with Symphony No. 2 composed by -- Poony Poon!?

Sorry, Cat. I don't think the people committing these atrocities are reading your English blog.

Chinese parents need to consult language coaches, not fortune tellers, when naming their kids.
