Chinese are ashamed of their names like Wing Wong

I am Chinese, I dislike my first name, it's ugly

I think my surname sounds stupid too

I'm Ling Lang, it makes my English friends laugh

Sticks & stones can break my bones, but not names

English names are beautiful, I feel important

English people cannot pronounce my names

My name is Ling Ling &people think I'm Ding-a-ling

I am not Chinese, I don't care about Chinese
