Really, what’s in a Chinese name? Plenty! That’s for sure. During this webinar, Jan Wostyn, co-founder and Director of International Relations at Hutong School, will take a closer look at various aspects surrounding Chinese names: their origin, their structure, their meaning and how Chinese names apply to foreigners. Finally, also the often funny or somewhat strange English “translations” of Chinese names will get some attention.

1. Introduction to Chinese names: structure and transliteration
2. Chinese family names
3. Chinese first names
4. Chinese names for foreigners
5. “Translation” of Chinese names into “English”
