That’s how I wrote my Chinese name since forever
It is read as “Jie Fo” which literally sounds like “Jeff” in Chinese
But what I didn’t know is that my name technically means “Clean Buddha”
If I pronounce it with a different tone though, Jie Fu can be 杰夫 which means “outstanding man”, which would be much more appropriate for a Chinese name (most Chinese names have a meaning of praise)
Or I guess I can be a clean man, or outstanding Buddha.
Either way, I think it’s funny, but I don’t think I will change it.
Just like how “My name Jeff”. And I won’t ever change that either…
