China continues to impress as we get closer and closer to the Olympic Games. It seems that almost 3,500 Chinese kids have the name "Olympics." That may seem a little ridiculous, but so what. A lot of American celebrities give their kids ridiculous names as well. Although maybe not quite as bad as Olympics.
But the fun thing is that kids aren't just getting named after the Olympics. Not at all. They're also being named after the Olympic mascots. The names are Bei Bei (880 people), Jing Jing (1,240), Huan Huan (1,063), Ying Ying (624) and Ni Ni (642). When put together, the phrase translates to "Beijing welcomes you!" Strangely, when separated, each individual name translates as "You will get your ass kicked repeatedly and thoroughly in school."
And in case you were wondering, 5,598 people have the same name as Yao Ming, who surprisingly is totally outclassed by star hurdler Liu Xiang, who has the same name as 18,462 other people in China.
