We all know that we shouldn’t make fun of people’s names just because they are not familiar to us and our native language. Even more so, we shouldn’t mock what they are named just because it sounds like something that is very funny to our ears. However, there are just some instances in which we just can’t help but laugh at these people no matter how cruel we may seem. It’s perfectly natural to laugh as this is the human response. One of the things that make us laugh so hard is funny Chinese names and there are tons of them that we just can’t help but burst out with laughter every time we hear them.
Sum Ting Wong
To be honest, there’s really nothing wrong with this name at all. In fact, it may even be a popular Chinese name for all we know. However, we just can’t help but laugh whenever someone says Sum Ting Wong is his name. We beg to ask the question “Is something wrong?” before bursting with laughter. Some might get it while others will totally miss out on the humor in this name.
Ai Bang Mai Ni
When you first read this name it appears perfectly normal. Then, you go on your merry way and totally forget you ever saw this name. Unfortunately, your leg hits a table on your way out then scream in agony “Oww! I bang my knee!….wait..” then laugh like you’ve never laughed before in your entire life. It’s just one of those names that can hold a deeper meaning without you even realizing it at all.
The person with this name drew the shortest straw in the bunch. For every individual that asks him what his name is, he would have already made a bad impression without him knowing it. Who in the world would even want to have a name that sounds like “dumb guy” and live with it for the rest of his life? Well, unless you can’t speak a word of English and happiness can be found if you are oblivious to what it sounds like.
Hu Yu Hai Ding
For every person that states this as his name, we can’t help but feel as if we are being interrogated by cops. Hu Yu Hai Ding, while a funny name, is not a great icebreaker at all. Just imagine meeting someone and ask him what his name is then get asked back another question as if you were harbouring a fugitive. Of course, he didn’t know that because Hu Yu Hai Ding is actually his real name.
No Pah King
This one doesn’t even have to be explained at all. Just get introduced to someone with this name and I dare you to keep a straight face. I dare you even more not to laugh if you meet this person while you are inside your vehicle looking for a spot to park in. Some people just have the worst luck in the world and it becomes even more evident in English-speaking countries. No Pah King, hah!
Chin Tu Fat
Have you ever been introduced to somebody and the first words out of their mouths are insults? Well, this guy right here won’t even realize it just because he wanted to say his name. Chin Tu Fat sounds like the funniest insult you will ever hear and the person saying it would have no idea that he was already dishing out a wisecrack.
Lei Ying Lo
“Hi, what’s your name?” you ask. The person responds with “I’m Lei Ying Lo.” Of course, you will either be dumbfounded or pissed as to why he won’t tell you his name and why he is laying low. After which, you will realize that he was trying to say his name to you all along.
