Hi, my name is Shuyin.

I was thinking maybe I should have an English name.

My name is always forgotten during those social settings. I don't understand how people could remember the Final Fantasy character, Shuin and yet, can't remember mine.

I can remember people's Chinese names pretty well, even better than english ones. They are like more unique, with more character, which I can better associate the person with.

I like my chinese name leh..
Shu=book=literature, Yin=music.

But maybe I should just get an English one for convenience sake.

Any suggestion?

I'll prefer it to start with an 'S' and not too common.

FYI: my so-called friends are suggesting GWENDOFALYN, LABIANA, VAGINARALA, FLANNY, SMOULDERIA, SULTRANA...
Oh, and CHEE, so that when we bid our goodbyes..

Go figure yourself.

I still think Labiana is very good. Subtle.

How about something that sticks to ur original name? Maybe Shuyinia or Teo (last name machiam model)? "OEI TEO, AI LIM KOPI MAI?"

Or Birdy!! =)

Use Gigi's fake name la, Samantha. Names with TH inside are all very nice. Ok maybe except Martha.

Sapphire! Sybil (Trelawny - it actually DOES mean wise or prophetic)! Sophie (I really like this name)... Satin! Shanelle? Silvia?

Siria: Means black (you like!)
Silana: Means dignified

Solitaire! Serendipity! Singapore!

Ok I am bored.

Sophie is good. I like it. Like that lovely girl in Love Me if You Dare. Sophie must be pronounced with a French accent.

Susie [or Susan] always sounds good to me. But it is a popular english name.

I think Wendy is right, Sophie is a good "S" name.

If you decide to have Sophie as your name, I shall be so nice as to change my name to Whisper, since my surname is Wong and my name happens to be a 'W' too. I love alliterations.

We shall coerce Yanyan to change her name to Kotex. Kotex Cheng.

Weili can be Laurier Fong.

So nice.

Depending on the intonation used, can't "shu" mean "rat" and "yin" mean "genitalia"?
