So long 'Cinderella': Website helps Chinese find better English names

Phat Song chose his own English name years ago, after drinking with a bunch of Americans in a Beijing bar. He says no matter how you spell it, it suits him. "Phat" — or cool — is the first American slang he learned. And, he adds, "I'm F-A-T." 

Billboard. Mo Money. Cinderella. Those are just a few of the unusual English names young Chinese have adopted over the years. An American entrepreneur hopes to help change that.
