Hello everybody, I just wrote this:

大家,请告诉我们你们的中文名字,你为什么选择了你的名字?你的名字有特别的意义吗?如果你没有中文名字,是因为你不要还是你还没选择?

Because in English 你 and 你们 both are translated as 'you', I wasn't exactly sure if I should use 你, 你们 or both. In a way, I am talking to a group, but in another way I am speaking to others individually.  How would Chinese people handle it?
