Q: Any of your students have hilarious English names?

In one class: Eternal Dawn
In the same class: a guy called Happy, another called Sad
In another: Rainbow

Even some of the younger Chinese English teachers chose 'wisely'. I did a double-take when one of them introduced herself as 'Apple'

Some boy names: Endless Night, Hulk (and he was 156cm tall), Jizz, Veedee(VD), Hymen

Girl names: Easy, Twink, Taint, Poopy, Lawanda

On a sidenote, everytime I encounter a student with an English name referring to "intelligence", these students are the most idiotic: Smart, Genius, Brain, and Einstein were some of the dumbest students I've had.

  I had one 9 year old student this week who'd decided to make a name change to Vanessa, which is not such a funny name in itself, except that the student in question is a boy. I was tempted to slap young Vanessa on the back and tell him 'good choice' but I didn't have the heart.

Echo is common. It comes and goes.

 

We have blue, green, Elvis, summer, holiday, big red, small red, and a little old lady. My daughter is little orange, her friend is big Apple. Too many names. I can't keep up.

A:I'm prepared to give the guy some slack. He asked a few shifty questions in 2012 then went dormant for 5 years and suddenly appears asking newbie questions. A bit suss but who knows, he could just be a moron. Benefit of the doubt given.
