During my search for ancestors, I've come across quite a few immigrants from China (mainly from Zhangzhou). Guess what? Many has 2 as well. My own Lin ancetor had 3: Lin Tu-cheng
: : I noticed that it seems to be more the Mandarin speaking than Cantonese speaking Chinese that have only 2 names. Don't know why.
: FYI: Wong Fei is a nickname. When she first started out she used her full name. I believe it's Wong Ching Man. Lai Ming kind of makes sense since it means the dawn.
