That's my (real) name in Chinese
The way it works is, every name has a root meaning to it. Like for instance I was told Albert 'means' nobleman, or gentleman, which can be translated to the equivalent Chinese word (I forget what Albert was in Chinese!).
Pretty cool, eh?

Although this name looks Chinese, Its meaning in one of the Indian language is "Person who moves from here and there without much thinking"
