Japanese term or phrase:Ching Ching
I have a friend whose name is Ching Ching and someone told her that in Japanese, it means something bad.
Explanation: The word is "chin chin" but because Japanese does not make a difference between "n" and "ng", it sounds the same. Chin chin is not an offensive word at all, though like many words can be offensive if used in the wrong situation.
At an ultrasound, I was an interpreter once, and the doctor was pointing out the baby's penis. I wasn't sure which word to use; later, a Japanese person said I should have said, "chin chin" and then given a short laugh.
