Hong Kong is the World Capital of terrible English names...most names here are self given rather than government names. Parents won't give their kids an English name most of the time so the kid somewhere along the line adopts one for himself.
- I have beef with people naming themselves things like "Jack" and "Joe" as their official name. Not John or Joseph, but literally people will go by these nicknames as official names.
- People adopting Japanese names when they're Chinese...a C-list celeb who was recently caught up in a fiasco where his wife was cheating on him with two other dudes, i found out he named his son "Yohji"...i wonder how he came about with that. I don't even think i've ever seen him in YY. And I don't think "Yohji" is really a common name in this generation anyway. Also girls who name themselves "Kawaii". LAME.
- People comin up with names that are just off the wall as what...Kennix? In the upcoming Miss HK Pageant there's some wackass names...there's a girl named "Decem", and this other slutty girl whose name is Edelweiss. Weak.
but the name that takes the cake in this whole thread has got to be Moon Unit Zappa.
