What’s so funny about your name? Your dad’s name is Zhang Yang. He lived up to his name to be very arrogant and he suffered from it. So he wanted daddy to be more in control of his life. That’s why your daddy’s name is Zhang Chi. Didn’t I end up flying high? I became a racecar driver, and I got a champion. What I want for you is to be like daddy, keep flying in life. And together, we are a team called Fei Chi. That’s why your name is Zhang Fei. Is there a problem? Does Liu Bei disapprove? Or is it Guan Yu?
