How do you pronounce MiaoXin?  Do u just call her Mia?

We call her Ahh-sahn actually. Other people call her Mia because they can't pronounce MiaoXin. I only call her Mia when I'm talking about her, never when I'm talking to her. If I talked about AhSan online everyone would go "who??" cause I referred to her as Mia while we were waiting for her. We had planned to keep her name MiaoXin, which is the Mandarin pronounciation and what was on all of her documents, and calling her Mia for short. When we met her, we found out she had been called AhSan her whole life and didn't recognize Miao Xin anymore than she recognized the name Mia or Betty Sue. San is the way Xin is said in Cantonese, and the Ah part is tacked on to make it a nickname, like y is tacked on to like Danny or Jenny to make them nicknames. The papers were already filled out though so we kept MiaoXin but call her Ahsan. Confusing, no? I wish someone had told me BEFORE we filled out the papers that she was Ahsan instead of MiaoXin!
MiaoXin is Meow Sheen, btw. I've thought well, maybe I should change it to AhSan or Ahsan MiaoXin Rain now that I know, but I'm going to let her make that decision when she's older. She may want her name to match what was on her papers and keep Ahsan as a nickname, I don't know.
