Talking of Chinese versions of foreign names, I like
- Andeli Poliwen: André Previn
- Laweier: Ravel
- Chake Beili (pronounced Charcur Bailey): Chuck Berry
- Ao Shaliwen (Ao as in “Ow!”): O’Sullivan.
I also like
- Dingding: Tintin.
Not to mention the Chinese transliteration of the word toothbrush:
- tuzibulashi—“rabbits don’t shit”, which inspired me to this fine headline.
For my Chinese name, and that of Beethoven, see here.
