1. What is your full name?
How should I address you?
How should I call you?
My full name is XXX.
And my English name is Jennie.
You are welcome to call me Jennie.
2. Does your name have any special meaning or significance?
Yes, it does have a special meaning. Literally it means to travel as far as beyond the stars.
What’s more, this name was given by a fortune-teller and he said with this name I would marry a great guy.
Notes:其实不知道自己姓名的意思也没关系。只要坦诚的告诉考官就可以。但是不可以简单的说“I don’t know”，而应该做合理的猜测以展现自己出自己流利的英文表达。但是在猜测的时候，考生可以充分的发挥想象力，没有必要长篇大论。
I don’t really know. It is given by my grandfather. I guess it means to travel as far as beyond the starts, because he also wanted me to become a great and successful person.
3. Have you ever changed your name? Why or why not?
No, I haven’t. I’m very happy about my Chinese name. And I guess I am never going to change it.
Well, yes. The previous name I had just sounds so silly. It is even close to the Chinese word for “baboon”. So in order to avoid continuing embarrassing myself, I changed it. And now I’m happy about my current name.
4. Do Chinese people like changing their names? Why or why not?
In my personal opinion, generally Chinese people don’t like changing their names, because to most people names are just symbols, though some people do believe names can affect the course of their life. In that case, if they are not content with who they are or what they have, they may change their names.
What kind of people like changing their names?
Well, generally Chinese people don’t like changing their names. But if they do, they must believe names are important to them, more than just symbols, or somehow carries a significant meaning to them. Among them, of course, some people are just superstitious.
What’s their purpose in changing their names?
It is hard to say. But as far as I know there are two major purposes. Number one, people change their names to make their names sound better. Number two, they change their names in order to change their destiny, because they believe names can affect the course of their life, no matter it is superstitious belief or just a willful thought.
Well, this is a big question. As far as I know, I don’t think Chinese people like to change their names often. Because most people believe names are just symbols. They don’t change anything. And destiny is in their own hands to make.
5. In your culture, do women change their names when they get married? I know it is quite common for women to take on their spouse’s family name in other cultures. But in my culture, that is not the case—women often keep their maiden name even after getting married. But the children will follow the father’s surname.
