I love to muse on people’s name and relate it to their personality traits and attributes.
Let’s share on how you came up with your Chinese name or who helped you coin your Chinese name. What characters it’s made of. What does it means literally and wholly. Is it sound translation or is it meaning translation? How do you feel about your that name.
Let’s start with me.
My Chinese name is 謝可為 [xie4 ke3 wei2] given by my parents
Literal meaning: grace or gratitude / for / to do
Real meaning: grateful, know how to repay kindness
言 [yan2] = word, symbolize ability with language and word
身 [shen4]= body, symbolize good posture and health
寸 [cun4] = inch, symbolize attention to detail, painstaking
口 [kou3] = mouth, symbolize ability to speak, gift of gab
ㄎ [qiao3] = smart, eloquence
爪 [zhua3] = grasp, stability
灬 [huo3] = fire, power, survivability
I guess that’s about it
