Chatterbox: Down to Earth

Did you guys

Did you guys know that Cho Chang is not an Asian name? (Please don't be offended, CBer Cho C.) In the Chinese movies, they changed her name to Qiu Zhang. Qiu means autumn, so it's a pretty name. The closest thing to Cho in Chinese in Chou, which means stinky. J.K. Rowling should really do some research before naming her characters! Also, her surname was pronounced wrong. The Chinese prounciation for Chang isn't Chay-ng, it's Chuh-ng.

Really?! Wow I never knew that! :O I didn't even know where Cho Chang even got her name. I've never read the Harry Potter books, so... 

Maybe J. K. Rowling wanted the caharcter named sound a little American and with just a tad but of Chinese in it.
