Chinese names are usually shorter. It's said Chinese takes up the least memory bytes for the same piece of info, ie more cost effective.

因为敬畏天地,东方传统文化对起地名有审慎规范,以遵循地理特点或风俗寄意为主,没有以人名封地的习惯,恐自大招损。西方刚好相反,有以人名为地方命名以彰显个人尊荣的传统,所以英国维多利亚女王治下的日不落帝国在全球多处留下了各种以‘维多利亚’命名的地标。中国历来鲜出人物的地方在西方上岸后不久出了天王国父,然后有’中山‘处处,民国初年甚至有4所国立大学挂有‘中山’。

传统文化有德薄不配位尊的说法,还有物以类聚人以群分的总结。
