家长给闺女取名王者荣耀_英语新闻

A PHOTOGRAPH OF THE REGISTRATION CARD of a newborn in Xi’an, Northwest China’s Shaanxi province has gone viral online because she has a unique name: Wangzhe Rongyao, or King of Glory, a popular mobile game. Beijing News comments:

陕西省省会西安市一位新生儿的户口本照片近日走红网络,因为,她有一个独一无二的名字:王者荣耀,这同时也是一款流行游戏的名字,《新京报》评论如下:

On domestic social network platforms, many have questioned whether the man has violated social rules by naming his daughter King of Glory. But local police have said people have the right to choose any name for their children, and there is nothing "illegal" or "immoral" about the newborn’s name. And since the name is composed of standard Chinese characters, they have registered it.

在国内社交平台上,许多网友质疑这位父亲给孩子取名王者荣耀是否违反了相关规定,不过本地民警察,人们有权选择自己孩子的名字,没有什么“不合法”或者“不道德”的说法。由于名字中的几个字都是标准中国汉字,这个名字就被注册了。

By registering the girl’s name, the police have protected the legal rights of a citizen. Yet it remains debatable whether the father has made a wise choice because the name "King of Glory" could cause inconveniences to the girl.

这个女孩的名字登记后,警察就会保护公民的合法权利。但这位父亲是否是做了一个明智的决定,仍是有争议的,因为这个名字将来可能会为孩子带来困扰。

First, a name distinguishes one person from another. But if a person is named after a popular mobile game, he or she could become an object of ridicule or jokes. Which in turn could make the person a loner and affect his or her character.

首先,名字将人与人区别开。但如果一个人的名字来自于一款流行游戏,她或他可能会成为笑柄。这反过来会使这个人不合群,并影响她/他的性格。

Second, King of Glory as a game might be the father’s favorite, but it certainly is not the girl’s favorite at this stage. In such a case, does the man have the right to impose his love for the game on his daughter? And if the girl is unhappy with her name after growing up, she would want to change it, which would involve quite a complicated legal procedure.

其次,“王者荣耀”可能是这位父亲最爱的一款游戏,但眼下一定不是他女儿最喜爱的。因此,父亲是否有权利将自己所爱强加到女儿身上?如果女孩长大后对名字不满意,她可能想改个名字,这需要经历非常复杂的法律程序。

More importantly, a person’s name is the most important element in such documents as ID card, school and college diplomas, as well as health records. She has to get them changed, too, which again would be troublesome. Does the man want his daughter to go through all that trouble?

更重要的是,一个人的名字是身份证、学生证、毕业证以及社保卡上最重要的元素。她要一一去改,这都会非常麻烦。这位父亲是否想要他的女儿经历所有这些麻烦?

What the father in Xi’an has done may be legal but not advisable.

总之,西安这位父亲所做的可能没有违法,却不太可取。
