    정주은; 주님에 은총

    Jung/Chung Ju/Joo Eun. It means the grace of God :D
    Lol, my name has so many stories behind it.

    I actually have no "real" English first name. I was born in Manhattan but on my birth certificate it says "Ju Eun". Since it's such a pain for Americans to say (and I type that with no hard feelings :P ), my kindergarten teacher suggested I go by "June" because it sounds similiar and it'll be easier to pronounce. So bam! I gained a new name.

    I'm a Jung but in America, I'm a Chung 청 (stupid romanizations). I didn't realize there was a difference (because I was illiterate in Korean until high school) until my mom scolded me when I introduced myself as Chung Ju Eun in Korean. It's alright for me to say "Hi, I'm June Chung" in English but not in Korean since I'm a Jung. Although, I'll be changing my last name to my mother's maiden name (Hwang, 황) next year so it doesn't matter either way anymore :lol:
    Everything will work out / because I have the sense to recognise, that I don't know how to let you go

    Vietnamese: Nguyễn Huyền Trinh

    Using Wiktionary, I got:
    Chinese: 阮 玄 貞
    Korean: 완/원 현 정
    So it would be Wan Hyun Jung or Won Hyun Jung.

    Could someone tell me if it's correct?

    Meeya / 미야

    The "Mee" part means "beautiful" but the "ya" is just a random addition to make it sound nice i think. My parents said they contemplated for months on my name before I was born. I felt so touched when I found out ^_^ I like my name. You don't normally see it spelt like that.

    mines 배현, I'm not registered with it, but my korean family calls me that. Its the turnout of years of fobs trying(or mumbling out of embarrassment) to say Peyton haha

    I read more of the thread, and I'm surprised at so many people making up Korean names...I think its better to go by names people actually refer to you by than to make up new ones.

    Romanization: Eun Mi
    Korean: 은미

    None of my teachers can pronounce it, though... that's why I kind of don't like the first day of school, since every single class I go to I have to correct their pronunciation of my name. For some reason, everyone sees 'Eun-mi' on their roster and says, 'Yoon-mi.' =.="

    My grandparents went to some guy who was like a master of Chinese characters to come up with my name before I was born... XD It's pretty, I guess, but it's kind of shallow imo.

    Eun = silver, Mi = beauty. ^^;

    romanized is soo (su) mi (mee) and hangul is 수미.
    my friends always make fun of me for it, saying it sounds like
    something you'd hear in a cartoon or something. TT TT

    This is really fascinating to me! I would like to share my adoptive Korean name:
    Lee Kyung Ah

    I really like my Korean name, though I use my English name officially :-)
