What was your name again?

In China, 87 percent of the population shares 100 names, according to the Beijing Morning Post. This is why common people in China are still known by the term "hundred common name," a phrase I heard most often when someone was either declining to answer a question about politics — "I’m just a hundred common name, I don’t understand" — or complaining about politics — "they don’t pay any attention to us hundred common names."
