Bei Kunrong

In my East Asian class we had to find out our Chinese names inspired by our English names. You can get your Chinese name here if you want to.


The first character or surname was chosen according to the spelling of my English name. The middle character of my name-Kun means earth, feminine, female. This name would traditionally be chosen by the grandparents. The last character of my name rong means appearance, tolerant.


I was born in the year of the horse.


In our last class we had to use traditional Chinese paint brushes made from animal hair and bamboo to paint our names.

I am Lu Bin ren. Born in the year of the chicken. Funny, all my life it's been the year of the rooster. Guess I've had a Chinese zodiac sex change...
