My Chinese name

My name in Chinese isn't that different from my regular name.

Technically, my name should be pronounced "eh-may." Aimee comes from the French verb "aimer" (to love) and means beloved.

In Chinese, the word "ai" means love. "Mei" means beautiful.

Our Mandarin teacher said my name would be "Ai-mei" (Eye-may). I think it's a nice name! :-)

In Chinese, though, the last name comes first. Our last name means "forest." Interesting...
