Product Description
Are your students clamoring for you to tell them what their Chinese name is? The truth is an English name translated into a Chinese-sounding name isn't a REAL Chinese name. But, this reproducible will allow your student to take 3 Chinese characters and form an AUTHENTIC Chinese name based on sound and meaning. Lists are in Chinese characters, pinyin with tones and English definitions. There are 3 pages:
1. Common Chinese Last Names
2. Common Girls' Names
3. Common Boys' Names
Each sheet allows the child to circle what they have chosen and gives simple guidelines. Thereafter, the child can begin to use their Chinese name in class! My students love it! If you're a Chinese teacher, you can also make stroke order sheets for each of them so that they can practice writing their new name.

Note: The teacher should be familiar with Chinese pronunciation and Chinese naming rules. Last names always come first, and they do not retain their original meanings. (In other words, last names will not be listed with a 'meaning' attached. There's no need to translate them.)
