    Can't we all just get along?

    Anyway, my proposed solution would come from a nickname that Zhang apparently has on Chinese boards, OO, combine that with her first initial and you get .... (wait for it) Coo. Works for me.

    I read on another board that her name (child-name) in Chinese is Yuan-Yuan, which means "round-round." Do you think that's where it comes from?

    Won't Zhang be changing her name to "Cara" anyway? (Tara, Sarah ...)

    caro = italian adjective "dear" for boys (masculine adjective)
    cara = italian adjective "dear" for girls (feminine adjective)

    lol.Cara :P :P

    I think CaroK could be a good compromise (in non-italians forums and especially in american forums, since we'll keep on calling her Caro with no doubt )
