How do English speakers find their Chinese name?
Hello, I just want to know... As an native English speaker, or even as someone who speaks Mandarin Chinese, how does one find what their name would be in Chinese, both in characters and in pinyin? Are the words that sound the closest to the English name used? Wouldn't that often make the name take on a different meaning? Or perhaps the meaning of the name is translated into Chinese and thus used as a name? I would love to know. Thanks.
