that in the Chinese version of Disney’s Mulan, the fake name she gives is “Ping”, but her family name “Fa” in English is “Hua” in Chinese, therefore her full name is “Hua Ping”, which is literally “Flower Vase”, and that’s why Shang is so bewildered because it’s a silly name.
but OP how could you not tell them the best part
“hua ping”/flower vase is chinese slang for “camp gay”

"I couldn’t have wished for a man as incredibly good as this man was. And even so I didn’t realize every quality of Bogie’s on that day. He was to surprise and delight me continually in the ensuing years."
Daphne du Maurier on her male alter ego “Eric Avon.”
As a child, Daphne du Maurier dressed as a boy and took on the name Eric Avon, encouraged by her father who was an actor and desperately wanted to have a son (but ended up with three daughters). For Du Maurier Eric Avon became more than a childhood fantasy; he was the source of her inspiration as a writer and the representation of a repressed side of herself, the part that was attracted to other women.
Du Maurier never identified as bisexual or as a lesbian because it was Eric (“the boy-in-the-box”) who fell in love with women, not her. When she grew older she decided that she “had to grow up” and locked him away, except when she was alone at her house Menability, where she “sometimes let the phantom who was neither girl nor boy but disembodied spirit dance in the evening when there was no one to see”.
