I need help! Who here knows Chinese?

lol Ok so don't laugh at me, but there's a really cute guy in my math class who's part Chinese. The Chinese part of his name is So Yee Ng. Ng being his last name of course. I was hoping that someone could provide me with the translation of his name into Chinese characters. Yeah it's a weird request...but I'm curious about him and wanted to see what I could find out about his name. And if there's any other tidbits you'd like to share, please feel free! Thanks!!!

He said it was Chinese, and I'd never know otherwise. lol

Have you tried searching on google or yahoo or whatever?

Ng is Chinese. Trust me on this one. That being said, I better not get any scary shit emails. *ahem* But other than that, I can't help you clarity. There aren't really any reasons why we're named what we are. It's alot like english names, "Oh that sounds good" or "Oh that has a good meaning." Unlike Western names, Chinese names are rarely the same as their parents or grandparents. If you honestly wanted to know more, your best bet would just be to ask him. Besides, it'd give you a good reason to talk to him!

Also, I wouldn't recommend firing So Yee into the computer simply because that's already anglicized so you wouldn't get a proper translation anyways.

Good luck.

Yeah, what J-Tree said...

I think his name is Chinese, but the problem is there are quite a number of characters which share the same pronounciation and thus translation.

I'll try my best though... (You computer have to be able to read Chinese Simplified Characters)

The last name is pretty easy. I'm sure that Ng should be .

The So Yee part is difficult to translate, there's a lot of possible match. I'll type them all out anyway. (hehe... I'm bored...)

So: , K,
Yee: , x,

These are the most probable words for boys. I don't think I helped a bit, but well...
