I met two girls once. They asked me my name, it turned out to be the same as girl #1's (Chris). So they asked me my middle name, it was the same as girl #2's first name (Jess).

I'm a guy, by the way.

And I guess that, if anyone from real life is reading this, they now know for sure that I am who they think I am.

My name is just Chinese without a Western name. It consists of one word for my family name, and two words for my personal name. When I was born my parents chose the two words for my personal name such that it doesn't sound like a common combination.

But when I got to secondary school and high school, I got to know one girl in each school whose name is pronounced exactly the same as mine (though their names may have been written slightly differently).
