I agree with your general point: people are generally flattered when someone shows an interest in their name. In return, Hyee, you could explain how Chinese names work. (Should I be addressing you as Hyee or as Wang, for instance? [rhetorical question ... kind of].)Of course, if you asked "What the hell is this em-em-ee crap!? You foreigners!" then I would probably be just as offended as poor Mme. Fuamba would be.
