很多台灣人都有英文名字
Many Taiwanese people have English names.

我覺得這樣子很不錯因為對我很方便,因為中文名字那麼難記
I think it’s easy for me to remember their English names, since Chinese names are more difficult to remember.

但是!!有一些人不小心唸錯了
However, some people mispronounce certain names.

1.Chad(恰的)

第一個是Chad(確的),有一些台灣人會唸成「恰的」
The first one is Chad. Some Taiwanese would mispronounce Chad.

但是「恰的」聽起來有點像一種零食,然後我聽到這個的時候就有點餓
Cha D sounds like some kind of snack so I get hungry if we keep talking about Cha D.

2.Ivan(以von)

第二個是Ivan,有一些台灣人會唸成Evonne
The second one is Ivan. Some Taiwanese would say Evonnev instead of Ivan.

但是Evonne聽起來有點像一個美國的設計師,所以你千萬別說了
But Evonne sounds like an American designer’s name, so don’t.

3.Howard(蒿握)

第三個是Howard(蒿握的),有些台灣人會唸成Howar
The third one is Howard.

他們都沒有把那個D唸出來
Some Taiwanese don’t pronounce D.

4.Brad(Bread)

第四個是Brad,有一些台灣人會唸成bread(麵包)
The fourth one is Brad. Some Taiwanese pronounce bread instead of Brad.

但是這個聽起來有點像你們在說「麵包」
But they are not the same at all.

5.Ronald(Roll嫩)

第五個是Ronald(ㄖ挖弄得)
The fifth one is Ronald.

雖然Ronald聽起來有點老,可是我發現還蠻多台灣人喜歡取比較老的名字,像Josephine,聽起來85歲
Although Ronald sounds old, but I notice many Taiwanese like old names. Like Josephine, which sounds like a 85-yr-old lady.
