My helper, Yu Peng, asked me to give her an English name today.
I have to say, it feels a little strange naming an adult.

What makes it harder is that Chinese names have meaning.
My language teacher's English name is Sunrise, because that is when she was born.

Americans tend to select names based on how they sound.

Oh, and it has to be something she can pronounce easily.

Hmmm... the pressure is on.
