If you are planning a trip to China, or are interested in Chinese culture, you probably do want to get a Chinese name. How to get one? You might do all of these:

  • Make one up yourself.
  • Use some sort of auto-generator to create a name.
  • Ask non-native speakers to make one up.

But it’s just a bad idea for a number of reasons:

  • You end up with a name that just doesn’t sound nice or flow.
  • You end up with a nonsense name.
  • You end up with a ridiculous / funny name (which is very possible).

People may ask like “here is my English name ____ – how do I write it in Chinese?” or “can you convert my English name _____ into Chinese?”  There are actually standard Chinese ‘versions’ of European names. They sound similar to the original names, but they’re never as good as an authentic, genuine Chinese name. Anyway, you can get one from us for free.

Obviously your preferences will vary, but we would recommend something that fits these:

  • Isn’t an obvious “foreigner” name like 史密斯 , 比尔 , 约翰 etc.
  • Isn’t too unusual or ostentatious.
  • Is just a nice-sounding, genuine name.

Here are some good examples for your reference:
