We were told by the director to correct the students’ English names on the first day of class. It wasn’t too hard since my students are all named Ross, Monica, Phoebe, Joey and Rachel. (Apparently Chandler was just a little too hard) I did have a couple laughable names but when I suggested to the Chinese TAs that Flower, Yummy, Elven and all three boys named Dick might consider new names, the TAs seemed to take it as an attack. So I dropped it, with one exception. The only name I insisted upon changing was Fanny. If you don’t know why, ask a Brit.
