Meaning of name assignment
-In Chinese, people’s name goes by family name first and then given name. My name will be Shen Hao. This name is homonymic to the Chinese word “very good”. Just like the meaning, they want me to be good. I heard from my parents that this name was given by my grandparents that they look through the dictionary and find my given name which is not used a lot by people in their life.
-In Chinese, my name is also homonymic to one animal —— mice. So, sometimes, my friends use this as my nickname. At the beginning, I dislike this name and forbid them to call me by this. But, after a while, I was getting used to whatever they used to call me. It is just a nickname and we only call others by his nickname when we are familiar to each other. In America, I found it is difficult for Americans to call my full name. I used to have one English name, but after a while, I found my first name is much more easier to remember and say for them. After that, I gave up the English name and goes by Hao.
-I haven’t changed my name before.
