What is the meaning of your kid’s name?

I was tagged by Michelle aka Xilly to write about how I choose my kid’s name. Well, can’t blame her, coz she is a new friend, and she doesn’t know I am not married. And I posted princess’ pic here, so I may have misled her.

So, I checked with Fiona, what should I write? Fiona said, “maybe you can write what do you want to name your kids”.

Actually, I have never thought of this. I love little princess and I love my elder niece, the ‘older’ princess. I love to spend time with them, especially little princess, but own kids?

So, I think hard, well, can I talk about my siblings’ name instead?

My elder sister’s name is : Sook Mung
My elder brother’s name is : Yee Pang
My name is : Lai Mung
My younger brother’s name is : Wai Pang

I guess you can see the similarity between my sister’s and my name and between my brothers’. I can’t talk much about our names, coz I am not really into Chinese.

The only word I know is our “Mung” is “sensitive” in Chinese.

Because parents added a “g” into “mun”, friends tend to call me “Lai Mang” with a very heavy tone on “Mang”. I hated it, coz my parents named me “Mung” as in “Mun”. “Lai Mang” sounds like eels in Chinese I was told.

Anyway, when I started working, I named myself Colleen so I do not have to correct people when they call me. But Colleen also sometimes give me trouble especially the spelling, some spell Collin, Collen, Coleen, Colin… never ending trouble.

Why Colleen? Hehehe… it’s a long long story. ;-)

Anyway, I choose to keep this tag to myself, coz Fiona warned me, not to pass this tag to her. And, my dear friends who already have kids are not blogging except Christina in Elly's World, but she is away to give birth to her second baby. :-)

Sorry Xilly, your tag has to end here. ;-(

Thanks for the tag. Really give face even you don't have a kid. So sorry for the misunderstanding. Now I know, and I will tag you again. :P

Actually you can still pass on this tag if you want. You don't have any married with kids blogging friends?

Helo Michelle, nice to see you here.

Ya, first time you tag me, I sure give face. :-)

The only blogging friend who has kid is in Elly's world, and she is in confinement I guess, for her second baby. :-)
