A CHINESE culture expert has revealed the VERY crass meaning of popular girl names like Rosie, Issy and Daisy in Cantonese.
Dr Candise Lin is a tutor of Mandarin and Cantonese, as well as an educator of Chinese cultures and languages ââon social media.
And she explained that the end of the common name “sie” means “s ***” in Cantonese, leaving many British girls with unfortunate names of “poo”.
In a new TikTok clip, Dr. Candise explains how Jessie means “bird poo” and Maisie means “beautiful poop” – but these are arguably the best of the bunch.
As the video continues, she explains how Rosie means “old poo”, Issy means “ear poo”, Josie means “morning poo” and Sissy means “double poo”.
In the comments, other native speakers revealed how Daisy translates to “big poo.”
The clip has already gotten millions of views and people are in turmoil.
Commenting on the post, a Jessy said: “So now I know where not to travel because I don’t want people to laugh at my name.”
While a Maisy replied: “At least I’m a beautiful shit”.
Others laughed, “It must be hysterical (to hear) people say their names.”
While a mom joked, “Should have named my daughter Josie, she was born in the morning. It makes sense.”
