Attack of the Niens
I have a little stats page that keeps track of the traffic coming into this blog. I noticed yesterday that someone found this thing by searching for “Nien blog”. I got curious and Googled it and it confirmed everything I was in denial about: I actually have a girl’s name. It’s not just girly, “Nien” or “Nian” is actually for girls like “Sophie” or “Emma”. Check it out:
Meet Nien Cheng, a Chinese American author who wrote “Life and Death in Shanghai”.
Meet Hai Nien, who says in her profile that she’s a really emotional person.
Meet Nien, whose favorite book is “Catcher in the Rye”.
Meet Nian, who eats snails.
Meet Nian, who is a fashion designer in California.
