Naming laws in the People's Republic of China Because the small number of Chinese surnames leads to confusion in social environments, and because some Chinese parents have a desire to give individuality, some Chinese have received unusual given names.
As of Aprilabout 60 million Chinese people have unusual characters in their names. A report by the Chinese public security bureau stated that of about 55, Chinese characters used in the People's Republic of China, only 32, of those are supported by the ministry's computers.
The PRC government has asked individuals with unusual names to change them so they can get new computer-readable public identity cards, and the diversity prevents them from receiving new identity cards if they do not change their names.
Originally the limits were to go in place in In Aprilthe list had been revised 70 times, and it still has not been put into effect. Now a lot of people are perplexed by their names. The computer cannot even recognize them and people cannot read them.
This has become an obstacle in communication. Taiwan[ edit ] Han family names on Taiwan are similar to those in southeast China, as most families trace their origins to places such as Fujian and Guangdong.
The Taiwanese aborigines have also adopted Chinese names as part of their Sinicization. Local variations also exist.
Given names that consist of one character are much less common on Taiwan than on the mainland. Although these names are rarely used in formal contexts, there are a few public figures who are well known by their nicknames, including former president A-bian and the singer A-mei.
Diaspora[ edit ] Among Chinese Americansit is common practice to be referred to primarily by the Western name and to use the Chinese given name as an often-omitted middle name. In Malaysia and Singaporeit is equally acceptable for Western names to appear before or after the Chinese given name, in Latin characters.
In general use, the English name first version is typically preferred as it keeps the correct order for both systems; however, for administrative purposes, the government agencies tend to place the English name last to organize lists of names and databases more easily, similar to the Western practice of organizing names with the last name first followed by a comma "Smith, John".
The Hong Kong printed media tend to adopt the hybrid name style—for example, Andy Lau Tak-wah —although some people prefer American-style middle names, such as Steven N. Cheungor simply use English names like Henry Lee.
On official records such as the Hong Kong Identity Cardsfamily names are always printed first in all-caps Latin characters and followed by a comma for all names, including Chinese ones.
Non-Chinese names are printed in similar style: Chinese names in English[ edit ] The signature of Sun Yat-sen ; in English Chinese people usually keep their names in Chinese order unless they live or travel abroad Chinese people, except for those traveling or living outside China, rarely reverse their names to the western naming order given name, then family name.
Western publications usually preserve the Chinese naming order, with the family name first, followed by the given name. Beginning in the early s, in regards to people from Mainland China western publications began using the Hanyu Pinyin romanization system instead of earlier romanization systems; this resulted from the normalization of diplomatic relations between the United States and the People's Republic of China in In English the presentation of Chinese names is similar to those of Korean names.
This is also the case for the standard styling of Hong Kong Chinese names, where the given name is hyphenated. Local readings are often written in katakana rather than kanji, but not always.Far Rockaway High School Classmate Memories, an extension of the FRHS Memorial Page.
