For me both. Some people might just choose a name they like, or given by teacher.

My wife picked her English name in the 2nd grade while growing up in Hong Kong.  She liked the movie "Alice in Wonderland".  She has not used the name in years.  She has the Chinese name of Choi.

Do people choose a name that is close to their Chinese name (transliteration) or do they just choose a name they like?

Yeah I feel the same in Shanghai, as this vote is from a Taiwan website.

i feel like i have heard the guy's names at the top of the list far more times than those on the girl's list. david, peter, michael seem extremely popular whereas i don't know if i have ever met a amy, lisa, vicky or angela.

i wonder why that is - maybe different regions have different preferences or something? (all my experience is in shanghai)
