Abstract
Provides one of the easiest methods to distinguish and catalogue Chinese personal names for American librarians, especially to those who know nothing about Chinese personal names. Briefly introduces the ways in which Chinese names are formed and examines different formats of Chinese personal names in the different countries and areas. Appendices present lists of popular Chinese last names in Chinese, Pinyin, Wade-Giles, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore formats. They are sorted alphabetically for Pinyin. An appendix provides a list of Hanyu Pinyin with Zhuyin Zimu, which may help people from Taiwan or other areas to learn Hanyu Pinyin. Presents some suggestions and comments on Chinese personal names for AACR2
