  1. They might find it odd that your surname is Beijing, but “Jing” is a common one, so I’d just use that.
    Or… “Birmingham” is also known as “Brum”, and cars go brum, so you could use 车 (chē, car) instead…

  2. Do you not think that it is odd that my name is Birmingham? I think that the Chinese would find Beijing just strange as anyone I have ever met here finds Birmingham. Anyway I thought it would be a slightly more playful way of doing it. I like it as it is…..

    …….but your input is appreciated.
