Literature-based Novel Names

Over at China Droll Cecilie, the ever-creative and naturalized-Cantonese "Christian", has a hilarious video taking the mickey out of literature-based names as well as presenting an unusually creative novel name. I think it captures the essence of Hong Kong novel names remarkably well!



Historic Moment: Episode 30 in Cantonese - The Movie



Thank you Cecilie for your fantastic work. Long may you continue!


Just to help clear things up … the novel name Anus is a Creation as well as a Deletion (of the Female name Annus or Male name Janus). So if, in the future, this blog encounters a real-life person with that name, it will be easy to categorize!!!
