Our Names Written in Chinese Characters

While at The Queens Zoo for the celebration of the Lunar New Year, we went to the calligraphy class. There we had our name written in Chinese characters.

It's really interesting how a name can look and sound different in another language.

Have you seen or heard your name in another language?
