Discusses Chinese-American names as a synthesis of both cultures' beliefs and traditions with regard to naming. Family names, given names, and generational names are considered, as are such topics as historical attempts to standardize Chinese name spelling in English, and the preservation of the written characters for Chinese surnames. Useful as a reference tool for Chinese Americans researching their genealogy and family trees, as well as for scholars studying the effects of cultural interaction and interchange.
