My name

"Li-Yi Wei" sounds just like "Lee-E Way" in English.
My last name is "Wei" (魏), and first name is "Li-Yi" (立一), which consists of two Chinese characters. There is no middle name. The last name proceeds the first name and thus 魏立一.
魏 originated from the seven warring states, even though DNA analysis points my ancestry to the north side of the great wall. 立一 literally means "the best"; not very modest by Chinese tradition, but reflects my style and embodies my ideology.
