Chinese 3c

Jeremy Lin, the first Taiwanese-American to play in the NBA. How to write his family name “Lin” in Chinese?

▲ Traditional Chinese: 林
▲ Simplified Chinese: 林
▲ Pinyin:  lin



Lín is a Chinese surname that is also used in Korea, Vietnam, and Japan. It is particularly common in southeastern China – specifically Fujian Province – and Taiwan. It is also common among overseas Chinese because many have origins in Fujian.

You’re probably already familiar with another very common Chinese surname, Wang. (a Taiwanese MLB pitcher)
