Wei, Will, We.


September 25, 2015

Wei is my name. So when I meet a new person, the conversation usually goes like this:

“Hi, I’m Wei.”


“No, Wei.”

“Oh, Weee! Nice to meet you!”

The name has only one syllable, which makes it so easy to remember, but also often, so easy to be mixed with other usages. For examples, people often say “Wait! Wait! Wait!” to call up others to wait for them, or say “Weeeeeee!” to express their boredom or excitement. In both cases, they sound exactly the same as “Wei”.
