Which one is Zack??
On Nov 3, 2002, Chun Wei writes: Zack is the one on the left ^^ He is my classmate.
In Taiwan, the ways that parents choose children's names sometimes have rules, too.
For example, when parents who want to have a boy give birth to girl, the parents will give her a boy's name, to pray that next time it will be a boy, or call her ¡§zhao-nan¡¨ or ¡§zhao-di¡¨ which means ¡§come male¡¨ and ¡§come boy¡¨, it's funny isn't it?
This is both tragic and comic, but now is rare to see.
Another way to choose children's names isto refer to a ¡§family book¡¨.
The ¡§family book¡¨ is the book in which is written down throughout past generations a choice-of-name grammar.
For example, my father's generation are all call ¡§Guo--* Lin¡¨.
My father is called Guo-sheng Lin
My uncle is called Guo-mao Lin
My aunt is called Guo-rong Lin
And my generation is all called ¡§Ji-* Lin¡¨
My name is Ji-wei Lin
My sister is called Ji-jun Lin
And so on ¡K¡K¡K
My English isn't good, but I hope you can understand what I am saying~~
