Friday Five III

This week’s Friday Five:

  1. Is the name you have now the same name that’s on your birth certificate? If not, what’s changed?

    Guopei has been my name since young. My father wanted to name me Bronson after American actor Charles Bronson; I’m so glad he didn’t put that name down on my birth certificate. But since so many people have trouble pronouncing and remembering my name, I decided to call myself Ray.

  2. If you could change your name (first, middle and/or last), what would it be?

    I like my name the way it is, although longtime friends find it difficult to associate me with the name Ray.

  3. Why were you named what you were? (Is there a story behind it? Who specifically was responsible for naming you?)

    My parents went to the fortune teller before I was born, and he told them that there must be the element of water in my name. Since the Chinese character pei has it, they decided to call me Guopei.

  4. Are there any names you really hate or love? What are they and why?

    I like the names Guopei and Ray; it’s self-explanatory.

  5. Is the analysis of your name at kabalarians.com / triggur.org / astroexpert accurate? How or how isn’t it?

    You can give it a try if you’re interested.
