any name u like. it doesn't have to be a common name. there are lots of americans with unique names and we would generally be very accepting of any name u choose.

Well. I hear that some Asian people trying to choose an English name attempt to take one that seems somehow similar to their real name.

If your real name is Zhyhuy ... well i don't know how that is pronounced, but it suggests to me names starting with 'H' .. and possibly with a 'Y' in there as well

So how about ... Harry, Harvey, Hayden or Hyde?

oh ,very well , tks a lot , i have choose several ,such as ,Joseph;Daniel;Matthew ;Jeffrey ,...they were pop names in 1980s . i am not sure which is suitable .
Report as
Well Joseph, Daniel and Matthew are all popular names due to their Christian roots. All are prominent figures from the Bible.

I don't know what religion you have, and it doesn't matter to me either, but if you are a Christian they are all very suitable. (or even if you aren't)

Jeffrey is a good name too. I have a cousin called Jeffrey.

Or you could pick a name from a famous actor you like ... Brad, Robert, Bruce, Jack, John, Jim, Kevin, Michael, Richard, Sean .. to name a few.

Good luck!

oh , thank you very much , you gave me so many worth suggestions . :)

I think your name is good! Hard to pronounce but good! I think instead of getting a completely different name, you should just make your name a different version that's similar to you name but Americans are able to pronounce.

Ha! True true, my family is from a country in Africa. So I understand, my last name is Belayneh...some of my friends say Baloney by mistake and we start laughing about it. My parents named me after an angel, and it's hard to pronounce too but they translated it to Michael.
Report as
:) that sounds good , most of my friends like Michael ! thank u Mike!

How about Jeremy? It was pretty popular for guys born in the 1980s, and it sounds a little like Zhi Hui (not exactly, but it's really hard to match Chinese names with English names based on sounds, and vice versa). It also works nicely with your last/family name: Jeremy Liu. Sounds very nice to me!
