俗话说“人如其名”,一个高逼格的名字绝对是居家旅行必备款,让你人前威风八面,人后自我陶醉……这些年,为了有逼格、不重名,不少中国小伙伴的英文名险些让老外笑掉大牙……主页君君之前还整理过他们在Quora(类似于国内的知乎)的吐槽,没看过的小伙伴可以回复[英文名]来感受一下。

吐槽归吐槽,有的人呵呵一笑而过,但有一位歪果仁居然从中找到了商机。不信来看。

前不久,英国《每日电讯报》网站报道了美国25岁妹纸林德塞•杰尼根决心帮中国小伙伴摆脱可笑英文名的事迹。世纪君:“嘎嘎女士”、“洗涤液”、“毛茸茸”……起这些名字的童鞋们,你们真的知道自己在干啥么?!

A 25-year-old American businesswoman has declared war on the “farcical” western names being adopted by young Chinese, vowing to liberate her clients from monikers that include Lady Gaga, Washing Liquid and Furry。

马上学: 除了正规的名字,英文名也分不同类型,比如moniker意指“绰号”、“名字”,nickname指“昵称”,pet name表示“爱称”,pen name指“笔名”

50块买不了服饰鞋包,一款量身打造的英文名,买不?

为了帮中国小伙伴解决这一难题,杰尼根专门建了个网站。访客可通过在线测试获得5个英文名,费用50元。想进一步咨询?1小时200元,约不?

Hoping to change that, Ms Jernigan recently launched BestEnglishName.Com, a website designed to help Chinese name-seekers avoid embarrassment. For 50 yuan (£5.45), visitors to the website can take a quiz that supplies them with five “automatically generated names” that have been vetted by the company. A one-hour advice session with Ms Jernigan costs 200 yuan。

如今,该网站每月的浏览量已达3万。大部分顾客是准备出国留学的年轻女性,杭州、昆明、上海、温州和成都的小伙伴们居多。(呵呵~ 你们暴露了!)

The website has received 30,000 page views per month and most clients so far were young women preparing applications to study overseas. They came from cities including Hangzhou, Kunming, Shanghai, Wenzhou and Chengdu。

歪果仁眼中杀伤力爆表的英文名,你躺枪了没?

最让杰尼根心碎的是Paradise(天堂)、 Sapphire(蓝宝石)、 Moon(月亮)、Lady Gaga和Washing Liquid(洗涤液)一类的英文名。女孩起男孩名的也很让人头疼,如:Larry(拉里)和Gary(盖瑞)。更有甚者起名叫Furry(毛茸茸)。这画面太美,已想象不能……

Among the most unfortunate names Jernigan had encountered were Paradise, Sapphire, Moon, Lady Gaga and Washing Liquid. Ms Jernigan said she had also come across young women named Larry and Gary。

“It can be really detrimental because it makes it seem like you don’t understand western culture and are not as smart [as you might be]。” Recently the American businesswoman was bamboozled to come across someone called Furry, as in Furry cat。

“I can’t quite figure that one out. There is a general adjective/name confusion, but this one is just strange,” she said。


在国内人见人爱花见花开,出了国咋就姥姥不疼舅舅不爱了?八成是你的英文名惹的祸!想要在国外混出一片天地的小伙伴们,起名要慎重哦~

“Your name is your first impression, it is what people are going to remember you by, it is your personal brand. So if you have one that makes people uncomfortable or is just completely confusing then it is going to be a barrier in all future conversations, introductions or relationships。”

除了指出哪些英文名太奇葩,杰尼根还在网站上分析了它们为啥不好,一起来感受下!
