Would the name "Ming" be funny in the UK?
Sadly yes. There was a lot of laughs when it was discovered on the internet that a bloke called Ming Mong owned a resturant somewhere up north. People round here wouldnt shut up about it for months. Poor guy...

I dislike my name. The only people I know with it are middle-aged or old. It's not a name that can really be shortened or adapted either grr.

I think it would be better for one to be introduced as Ting. At least The Tings Tings is a popular British Band.

Yeah, my first name is Faith, which although is increasingly common, it used to be really really rare.

I kinda like it, I like being different and I get a lot of nice comments about it.

My middle name and surname however are horrendous, no one can say them and no one can spell them... it drives me mad!

Mines ok, but people always spell it wrong. They always spell it racheal when it's rachael. Or i get rachel or even sometimes rachelle.

Danny is pretty good, but I would have preferred Felix or Barnaby.

I spent a couple of years towards the end of my school days without anyone I knew calling me by my first name. This has affected me to the point where I get genuinely freaked out when people at university call me 'Richard.' It's been two years now and I still haven't got the hang of it. For that reason more than any I'm not a huge fan of it.

Yep, I love it When I was younger I wanted it to be shorter but now I adore my name! People always compliment me on it (like I could pick it?!) and say how lovely it is. I've never met anyone with the same name and it's only occasionally I see it in a paper or magazine or something, so I get that little flurry of excitement - "They've got the same name as me!" :p:

First Name - It's me, I can't imagine any other name suiting actually

Surname - It's the most unique, weird, mispronounced name ever...LOVE it!!!

Not really no...

Even being called Andy doesn't make up for it..

(and the fact that my name is the same as a fat News Reader.. just adds to the disgrace of it..)

I like my first and last names

I prefer my old surname though, but changed it when my parents got divorced.

And I used to hate my middle name cos it's completely unique, but I like it now too
