Names in Chinese

Writing names in chinese seems sometimes a bit upside down for Europeans.  Normally the Familyname is written first than the surname. So if your family name is for example Wu and your given name is John, than the name in chinese would be written Zhang John.

Titles are written after the name. Mr. Zhang would be written in chinese Zhang Mr.

Here are a few useful words for titles:
