1) What is your (full) name? Does your name have any special meaning?
- My full name is Nguyen Thi Hong. My parents gave me that name.
- In English, Hong means “Pink” which is a very bright color. So I guess my parents wanted to have a cheerful and successful life.
Have you ever changed your name? Why or why not?
- I have never changed my name and I will not, even in the future. I am fond of this name and it is really meaningful to me since my parents must have considered a lot to give me that name.
- To be honest, I have changed my name once. My old name was Tũn and it was a common name 20 years ago, when every Vietnamese parent wanted their children to have a short and funny name so that they could bring up us more easily. However, today it sounds quite odd and not appropriate each time I joint a formal incident and have to introduce myself. So I came to a decision that I must have a new name, which is my current name as you know.
Why do so many people change their name?
I am not sure about other countries but in Vietnam, I think most people change their names because these names are not really appropriate nowadays. In the past, most of Vietnamese parent wanted their children to have a short and funny name so that they could bring them up more easily. However, today it sounds quite odd and not appropriate and they believe that more suitable names will bring them good fortune. So I guess that is the most popular reason why people changed their names.
How many people in your family?
My nuclear family includes 4 members: My parents, my elder brother and me.
Describe your family? Do you have strict parents?
- I was born in an extended family. I have two siblings, a younger sister and a younger brother.
- I think my parents are not really strict. They can punish me when I do something wrong, but most of the time they are quite comfortable and allow me to follow my interest. I do not think they are severe compared to other parents.
Do you live with your family? How much time do you spend with your family? Do you get along well with your family? When was the last time you met your extended family? What as the occasion?
- Currently I still live with my family. Although I have already had a job, I cannot afford living individually, so I think I will go on this for a long time.
- Since I must go to work every day, I can only spend few hours in the evening with my family. We often have dinner together and talk about what happened during the day. I really appreciate each moment we have with each other.
- My family members have a lot of things in common, so we really get on well. Both of my mother and I like clothes, so we often go shopping in leisure time. I think it is in the blood. Otherwise, my younger sister and I are truly flesh and blood. We are all crazy about Korean culture with spicy food, handsome boy band and fashionable style. My younger brother, on the other hand, really sticks with my father. They always play badminton in the morning together and my brother confesses with him everything happening at school. I am truly proud of my family.
Are people in your country generally close to their families?
I think in my country, people are likely to have a strong relationship with their families. This is a part of Vietnamese culture, and it is also derived from the necessity of emotion connection. Parents often take care of their children until they grow up until and graduate from university. On the other hand, children also look after their parents when they get old. And this relationship does not end even though children live independently and have their own family.
