PostSubject: Why did he choose the name Alien?   Sun Oct 04, 2009 3:56 am

Ive always wondered about his 'english' name.
Does he know what it means, did he choose it for that purpose?
Or does he want it to be like Allan but with alternative spelling??
I thought someone here might know Smile

i guess he chose ALIEN to be his english name just to be 'unique' lol!
i'm sure nobody wants to be called ALIEN so that's prolly why he chose it so he can be recognized easily once someone asked "do you know ALIEN?"...
but idk the real reason too.it also made me curious once.i remember i even asked SANGUINE about his name.

ok so i know this piece of question's been lingering since long time ago. LOLs, and no i didn't get to ask him why his name was Alien when i saw him in Taiwan last year. BUT, however he did explain it in an interview when he came to singapore in March. the full news is found Arrow here. however, i shall quote from the news on why he chose the name A L I E N Smile

Quote :
THE first thing that grabs your attention about singer-host Alien Huang - other than his uncanny resemblance to fellow Taiwanese artiste Show Luo - is his odd name.
It's not unusual for celebrities in the region to take on weird names, but Alien seems to be in a league of its own.
And yes, it was his own idea.

With a hearty chuckle, the 26-year-old told local reporters that he had given himself the name in junior high school.
'First, I am a big fan of the Alien films,' he said, referring to the classic sci-fi horror series that shot Sigourney Weaver to fame in the 1980s.
'Also, I wanted to find a name that was close to my Chinese nickname, Xiao Gui (Little Ghost).
'I was called Xiao Gui in my younger days because I was always doing things out of the box, things that seemed weird to people.'
He hoped his English name would similarly reflect this unorthodox side of his personality.

Alien, who was in town to promote his debut album, Love Hero, settled on the name after looking up the definition of 'alien' in the dictionary.
'I liked the fact that it meant a 'foreigner', one who doesn't belong,' he explained.
'I don't want to be boxed in by conventions. I believe I am not easily defined and I can evolve to become someone unique, with my own style.
'So, this name suits me best. It might sound strange, but it constantly motivates me to do better.'

hope that would answer the original question to this post. sorry it took me THIS long to actually inform everyone. LOL! well, you might already know it by now anyway.
