@Georgeee Very kind! Thanks! I see... Well, for now I'm a student of Mandarin, but learning some Traditional on the way won't harm... :D

I think it's the same phenomenon I described in the second part of my answer, where some characters lose their tones, and not just for a matter of transcription.

Can you provide some actual examples of such discrepancies you're referring to?

Your post wasn't answering my question but you made a good point and I added a small part to include the topic covered by your answer.

comment How do we choose the correct characters for a westerner name?
It was probably bad phrased in that part, but see my title. I wasn't asking for that, I was asking for the (possible) rules to follow. :) Hopefully the edit clears it all now.

I edited my question to make it clear that I'm not asking about my name, which was the same as before, but now it's clearer.

@Cocowalla First, I don't understand the downvote, which means this is a "bad" question. Off topic questions aren't necessarily "bad". But apart from that, it's not subjective. I wasn't asking to make my name in chinese, but if there are rules to make it or if we simply choose what we want. The answers can be two: "It's arbitrary" or "No, there are rules". How is that subjective?

@Georgeee If possible can you write also the simplified version of the first examples you wrote? Don't delete the traditional though, I want to see them both so I can see the differences.
