diatryma's foreign-language teacher is full of awesome.

I had been looking up Chinese names for a while, mostly floral things, but I wanted something a little more... okay, a botanical name is fine, but even then I'd want something like 'bell pepper' or 'poplar' rather than 'graceful lily'. I ended up requesting 'mad scientist' if possible, and something that sounded right if not.

The teacher spent two weeks putting together names for us, trying to match our own names as closely as possible. I am Ke Qianling, though I don't know where to put the spaces and my computer refuses to do tone markings. [...]

"Qian", she said, means "intelligent", and "ling" is for "victory".

My Chinese name translates to BWAHAHA.

Context is practicing her laugh.
