    Just for fun :D

    For those who cannot understand what is this all about, i should explain like this. The Chinese, Malaysian Chinese, Korean, Japanese all have names in the Chinese characters.

    Chinese characters have different pronounciation in different regions. For example, the character "Lin" (as in Lin Dan) is pronounced as "Hayashi" in Japanese, "Lam" in Cantonese/Hong Kong, and of course "Lin" in Chinese language, etc

    For Malaysian Chinese names, although they are always read in Mandarin, but in the identity card/birth cert, it is not written in pinyin mostly, but most of the time, wrriten in pronounciation in Cantonese or Hokkien or other dialect or mix of them.

    HOwever, compare to others, Korean less use chinese character in their names.

    Lin Dan

    Malaysian Chinese - Lim Tan
    Japanese - Hayashi xxx(dunno how 2 pronounce character 'dan' in japanese)
    Hong Kong - Lam Tan
    Korean - ??


    Wong Choong Hann
    Chinese - Huang Zhonghan
    Hong Kong - Wong Chung Hon
    Japanese - ???
    Korean - ???


    Zhao Jianhua
    Malaysian Chinese - Chew Ken Wah

    Chinese characters or ideograms used in Japanese writing. The characters may have different meanings from their Chinese counterparts. See Hiragana and Katakana.
    www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/library/glossaries/unicode.html


    (kahn-gee) is Japanese for "Chinese (kan) characters (ji)." These characters originated in China approximately 4000 years ago, and were imported into Japan, where they were adapted to the Japanese spoken language. Consequently, kanji are very close to the Chinese hanzi and share many identical characters, although they are pronounced differently (eg, "kan" instead of "han," and "ji" instead of "zi"). Kanji are sometimes (loosely) called ideograms as they generally represent ideas or objects, although they are frequently used only phonetically. The other Japanese characters sets - hiragana, katakana, and romaji - are exclusively phonetic. Some words consist of just one kanji
