Is that your real name?

If you met a girl who introduced herself as "Jing Jing" how would you respond?

Well my reaction was to laugh and ask what the nickname meant.

"That's catchy, but whats your real name?"

She assured me Jing Jing was in fact her true given name.

I found that difficult to believe and somewhat humorous.

My laughter and doubt ended any chances for further conversation.

Yes, she was Asian but come on...Jing Jing??!!

Is that even a real name? Guess I'll never know.
