i understand where you're coming from, but your chinese name is probably a lot more difficult to say than varvatos, kiton, hermes, or versace. when people mispronounce these, it is out of laziness. also, what's the deal with asians having their so called 'american' names. i know a korean guy who doesn't even speak english but calls himself brian. all the asians i know have what they call their american name. i tell them the only real american names are geronimo, pocahontas, and so on... if you're name is li chan then call yourself li chan. are they afraid they won't get a job if their name is not david or ben?
