In Hong Kong, the fast food restaurants make their workers choose an English name to wear on their tag (e.g. 'Shark' Li, 'Bee' Tsang, or whatever). Its kind of a cliched expat joke to laugh at them, but their kids making a buck and I'm sure they could care less what some old white guy thinks of their Nom de Large Fries. On the other hand, I still get a chuckle out of the girl at Haagen-Dazs who called herself "Money" Ho.
