Hi Laura,

Unfortunately there it is hard translate names as they do not translate directly. However, a good option could be 劳拉 láo là.
I hope you like it. Of course there are always many options and you should keep searching until you find the one that you like the most!

Happy studies,

你好 Jantera,

I am sorry but I am not aware of any common translation for your name. To be honest I have never heard this name before either, where may I ask does it come from?

珍特饶 zhēntèráo does however have a nice ring to it.

大家好!

Picking a Chinese name is something that is completely up to you. There some transliterations for popular western names but in my opinion you should choose a name not based on what your current name sounds like but how you would like to be represented when you present yourself in China.

Here is a website that can give you a name based on your name, age and how you would like to be viewed. Another thing to remember in Chinese is that names are far more flexible in Chinese than in different cultures. Therefore, you shouldn't be worried about picking a word that is "wrong" because that simply doesn't exist in China.

My Chinese friends advised against a "translated" name so I went to a Chinese name expert and had her suggest a few options. They typically ask a lot of questions about your personality, family, interests and have your name reflect somewhat your inner self. Then I had my Chinese friends help me choose from the suggested names. Settled on 贺升龙 which I have used on business and socially and certainly in my Chinese class.

Jeanne--18 July 13, 2014, 4:06 am
My Chinese friend calls me something like "Jennie," which I think is a transliteration of my name. I pronounce it like Jean, but "Jennie" is okay, since most of my friends call me Jeannie.

I like the way the Chinese give names to their children that mean something nice. I've met Chinese girls whose names mean flower, star, much beloved, grace, and other things like that.

大家好!

I have to say I agree with you Jeanne. I do very much enjoy the freedom and creativity that is put into the choosing of a Chinese name. Although depending on the region and family you are from, sometimes there can be certain "rules" that people prefer to adhere to but by and large it can be very liberal. English on the other hand seems to have a very rigid set of names to choose from and although it happens from time to time, it is still seen as bizarre to call your child 'apple', 'shadow', 'sunshine' etc.

Keep up the good work! - 加油!
