    Hy, guys.

    Can't understand the meaning of the word "canny" on a list of notes from a book:

    Roy Y. J. Chua and Xi Zou (Canny), "Effects on Exposure to Luxury Goods on Cognition", New York: Harvard Press, 2001.

    Could it be the American nickname of this guy Xi Zou?

    It has to be a nickname. Here goes another paper from Xi "Canny" Zou (note typography here).
    This is a nice cultural question.
    About Chinese using English names. Some of those names are weird. I know a lady whose English name is Benz. Yes, as in Mercedes Benz :).
