Considering the number of people in China, it may be surprising that many people share the same name. In this HSK 5 reading practice we will discuss a bit about common Chinese names. Many names come from descendants of Emperors from various dynasties. Honorable surnames are quite popular. Where does your own name come from?
In our HSK 5 level readings you will find words mixed in from all levels. You will be able to review words that you may have learned long ago, and get exposure to ones you may not have seen before. The great thing about reading stories and lessons written by native Chinese speakers is that you can see how Chinese is written in a natural way.
We hope you enjoy this reading practice. You can find more lessons at the end of this post, and in the app, “Du Chinese.”
