My favourite English name is Ben. Because it is simple and it has the same pronunciation with Chinese "笨". "笨" means not clever and even stupid. But as it is said in the Chinese idiom "大智若愚", the wisest man often seems stupid. Hmmm, yes, I like being simple and I want to be a person who is too kind, too genuine, too earnest, even seems stupid. I know it is a long way to go. Keep improving. :P

How about you? Which English name do you like best?

笨 Bèn
大智若愚 Dà Zhì Ruò Yú
