lmao my Chinese dictionary also includes names of famous people in Chinese—apparently Rihanna is “Leihana”

Also @fen your name is in like several cool words in Chinese if you ever want a nickname haha

@carly ooooh yes please, i wanna know what they are

@fen fenkai (愤慨): righteously indignant; qinfen (勤奋) diligent, assiduous, industrious; fenfang (芬芳) sweet-smelling, fragrant

@fen also if you want to be SUPER goth there's a version of fen (坟) that means grave/tomb

@carly wait, does Chinese also do the R/L conflation?

@lassarina sort of but not really; L and R have more similar sounds than in english but are distinct! I think "ri" is probably (?) a syllable in chinese but possibly the name meaning was better as "leihana" than whatever the alternatives were
