Odd name behavior in OS X - Mac Portable

I am running OS X on a new PowerBook, and I have some strange behavior that I need advice on. When I "Get Info" on a file from the Finder, and I open the Ownership & Permissions drop-down, instead of my name showing as Owner, I get something in Korean or Chinese script, followed by "(Me)". The Asian script part changes, but it never gives me the actual name I use on the machine, which is in conventional English. Does anyone know where this particular glitch comes from, and how it can be fixed? William Clark...

    Default Odd name behavior in OS X

    I am running OS X on a new PowerBook, and I have some strange behavior
    that I need advice on. When I "Get Info" on a file from the Finder, and
    I open the Ownership & Permissions drop-down, instead of my name showing
    as Owner, I get something in Korean or Chinese script, followed by
    "(Me)". The Asian script part changes, but it never gives me the actual
    name I use on the machine, which is in conventional English.

    Does anyone know where this particular glitch comes from, and how it can
    be fixed?

    Strange that no one replies on that one - I noticed it also, in all
    versions of OS X I had up to now (10.2.5 I think is the one I have on my
    TiBook)

    Never figured out what that meant!

    Cheers

    Good, I am glad it isn't just me or my machine! I began to wonder when
    there were no replies.
