Of all of the personal questions, i think this question ranks as one of the
top 3 most asked question
Why is your name Ferlyn Yoshimi??
I shall address this question once and for all.
My full name is
Ferlyn Paige Tan Jia Mei
Yoshimi is not in my full name but it is STILL my name.
My chinese name Jia Mei is written 佳美
My chinese name 佳美, so happens to be a very common name is Japan.
佳美 directly translate to Yoshimi, よしみ= 佳美
So since its a common name and its my name and its a really pretty name i decided to use it.
I dont introduce myself as Yoshimi unless the person is Japanese.
1) Its really hard for Japanese to pronounce my english name Ferlyn
2) Yoshimi is easier for them to remember
3) Its more relatable since its a common Japanese name.
I lived in Tokyo and so living by the name Yoshimi is much easier as to having most of my friends with a difficulty pronouncing my name and making both parties feel awkward about it
Together with my enligsh name
sounds really nice~ so i decided to use that as my blog name
I hope this little QnA answered your question as to why is my name the way it is.
