Posted by Wae Wang on October 21, 2001 at 13:04:45:

my father is chinese and when i was born they gave me a generational name Wae... they call me Wae Wae at home. my questions are...
what is the purpose of a generational name... i've never encountered anyone outside of my family with one.

is there a way to translate my name into characters? my father doesn't know how.

i believe that my name is incomplete as well... or does adding on the extra Wae complete the name?
thanks for any help
