I’m wondering if someone here who is better with Chinese or perhaps even a native can help me out.
My wife and I will be moving to Taiwan in late August and we are wondering what our Chinese names should be. She really likes the surname of ma3 (horse), but we don’t know what our given names should be. She was considering the name 马玉 and then I would have the name 马天， but a Chinese professor I had said that two character names are a mainland thing and if we are in Taiwan and want to be more Taiwanese-like then we should have a three character name.
Does anyone have any thoughts to this?
We want to have easy characters in our names because we are lazy stupid foreigners, but we don’t want the names to sound really dumb. Also, I understand that the characters I posted are in simplified Chinese, I don’t know how to write traditional characters on this computer.
Thanks for all your help!
