I am just wondering, if a person takes on a name from a fictional source, does it count as copyright infringement and liable to be sued? :bsmilie:

eg. Akira Tan, Iron Man Shen, Darth Vader Ong, Die Hard Lim, etc etc

Sure thing, if you want to be laughed at all the time, whereever you go.....:bsmilie:

What copyright? Can I sue Christopher Lee for not being a christian but using my name?

Its bad that the parents choose lousy/weird names for their kids, but to do it on your self, that's being silly....:bsmilie:

Well, don't let me catch him wearing underwear outside his tights....I will call police....:bsmilie: BTW, is that even in english?

Wong is a common surname, and Fei Hong is also a common name. "master" is a title, and not a name. But then, you can always call yourself whatever you want. Just that you must be prepared to bear with being the butt of jokes....:bsmilie: With a name like that, just make sure he is a trained martial artist, else will get hantum all the time.

I know someone called Lin Jun Jie. Junjie is quite a common name, and he happens to have the common surname Lin, and it happens to be that of a famous singer.
Well, it depends on who gets famous first, loh!

Anyway, TS is asking about fictional names, and I did make a few mistake in the earlier post.

So if he ever signed on and become Master sergeant, then he is Master Master Wong? Now what Corporal Master Wong? :bsmilie: I think I will just stick with "chao Cpl" lah!

A person's name decribes the person he is or aspire to be. So choosing a name is important indeed.

Oh ya, mine pronounced as... Delete Control no Alternative. - the underscore is just so that the words look separated, and the no is purposely made small.
Quite a mouthful. I am lazy, so if I meet you in person, I will call you del (pronounced "Dell") don't think del will sue you lah. You will be their walking advert.
