Korean Kids with English Names

Many of my students that attend Hagwons have English names that are used at the Hagwons, recently I have been learning more and more, some of the interesting ones are....

  • Ardellio (No idea where that came from for him)
  • Peaches
  • Sienna
  • Shinee
  • Carly (for a boy?)
  • Cherry
  • Ocean
  • Bill (which isn't that funny but calling a 13 year old Korean child Bill gets me every time)
  • Shock

and finally......ADOLPH.

after being informed his name is Adolph, mid thought process (Do they even know....) his friends say "Yes, Teacher he is German"...

That lesson we played a game called 'Let's go camping' the students were invited on a camping trip and had to say "I'm (name), I'll bring (item)"

"I'm Adolph, I'll bring" ......oh the humorous possibilities!

My students names are not actually that amusing in comparison to some I have heard, students seem to name themselves after anything from people to just sounds they like! Hamburger, Beyonce, Ice, Kimchi....
