Hi.
Im thinking of using a new English name when I go to uni...
I was also going to use the name when im lucky enough to become an actress in Korea. lol.

Its not that i dont like my Korean name (Yumi) but i just want to be different.

Anyway..I quite like the name Rachel... but its too hard to pronounce for Koreans coz we dont have a "ch" sound...

Sarah is quite nice... but its too common...

Lily... Hazel... Kimberly... I have so many ideas but i dont know...
Any suggestions?
A name that is simple and nice...

How about looking on the internet at English names? There are loads of sites and they tell you the meaning and origin of the name so you can choose a name with a cool meaning!!

You don't need to change your name, it is not as if your name is very hard to pronounce, I personally like it, although I am slightly biased, I like far eastern names.

Few of the names mentioned are 'true' English names, a lot are derivites from Greek/French/German etc names.
