How do Chinese parents choose a name for their child?
Some parents like to give their child a name by combining the father and the mother's surnames. This method is actually quite good, but one must be careful to avoid ambiguities that might arise when combining the names. For example, with a father named Zhū (朱) and a mother named Luó (罗), you might accidentally end up naming the kid “Zhū Luó” (朱罗), which unfortunately has the same pronunciation as pig (猪猡).
