Suppose I want to make up a story featuring an unimportant Chinese character. How do I give the name, so it sound like Chinese, but do not carry too much particular meaning?
That said, the Chinese character is neither the protagonist nor the antagonist, and has a minimal characteristic. Neverthless, a name is still needed. What I want is a name that sound like annonymous, while still consisting of a first name and a last name.
Like "Charlie" for English and "Ivan" for Russian, I want the name to imply Chinese nationality, especially when heard by foreign people.
I don't want the name as a pun, because thus will limit the target audience to some native language the pun originated.
Both genders may be considered.
Although statistics are out there on name distribution among the population, I am still interested how those names sound like when some foreign people hear it.
Also please do not come up with names "Madam Three", "Mister Four", and "Five" alike. They are too made up that real parents would never name a child as such.
Below is this exact question phrased in Chinese.
