There is a popular meme online which photoshops John Cena's face onto Mao Zedong, naming it 'Zhong XiNa'.

Is there a possibility that this can be transliterated into a real, meaningful Chinese name?

1 Answer 1


John Cena's 'Chinese name' is 赵喜娜,its a more of a ridicule than an actual translated name, I mean if you really want it, you can go 钟(An actual Chinese last name)西(West)纳(As in NASDAQ), which is the pinyin of 'Zhong XiNa'.

  • Isn't 赵喜娜 a female name? John is a male name.
