Chinese students have translated my name into Chinese and the result is weird and has nothing to with my real name. I realise that it is a genuine chinese name... but I saw them actually doing some kind of translation. I mean it was quite clear that it wasn't just random name choice. How exactly are they doing it??

Here's a question: What did you tell them your name was? Might or might not be a Chinese name. Might just turn out to be a direct / indirect translation/interpretation?
