I have been looking through Shiseido’s address book in China and couldn’t help but notice some interesting choice of names. Now, I said ‘choice’ because I’m pretty sure these names were not the doings of the parents. It seems like a case of loss in translation – either that, or some deliberately picked names that would be easy conversation starters.

How about a name inspired by nature:
No? Perhaps you’re a foodie? How about:
- Crunchy (“Mmm… CRUNCHY!”)
Love animals? Why not name yourself:

Proud of yourself? Then these are for you:
- Handsome (“Hello, I am Handsome!”)
- One (“Hey there”… “I am…the ONE” *winks*)
The choices are literally endless!
