English pronunciation of Chinese names is generally pronounced with the last name and the first name at the front. For Hanyu Pinyin spelling, space is needed between the first name and the last name.
For one-character names, both the first letter of the first name and the last name should be capitalized.
For names with two or more characters, only the surname and the first initial of the name should be capitalized, and there should be no space between the names.
For example, Yu Meiqi Yu is written as Meiqi Yu; Lei Feng is written as Lei Feng.
There is also no uniform English translation for Chinese names.
1, “Sun Yat-Sen” is written as “Sun Yat-Sen” because Sun Yat Sen’s original name was Sun Wen, alias “Yixian,” so Sun Yat-Sen is also called “Sun Yat-Sen.” The name “Sun Yat-Sen” was also recorded in English literature while Sun Yat-Sen was abroad.
Sun Yat-sen came from the Guangdong region and was introduced into the English language with his dialectal speech. The pronunciation of the name “Sun Yat-Sen” in Cantonese is close to “S Yun Yat Sin,” so the English pronunciation is “Sun Yat-Sen. “
2, The translation of Chiang Kai-shek also contains a sizeable dialectal component, and the English spelling is organized directly according to the reproduction of the name owner.
3, “Chow Yun Fat,” spelled as “Chou Yun Fat,” belongs to the modern Hong Kong-style spelling, so Hong Kong has introduced its pinyin system according to its own pinyin rules, starting from the local Cantonese language.
4, “Jay Chou” is another way of translation. Jay is an English name called “Jay,” and “Chou” is his last name, “Zhou.”
The Chinese name “Yu Meiqi” is expressed in various known pinyin forms as follows.
Mainland Chinese Mandarin Hanyu Pinyin: Yu Mei Qi
