Baby Names

A Chinese Baby Name
Traditions in China vary considerably from the Western culture when naming a baby. Chinese names are only ever repeated by complete accident. The majority of given Chinese names are completely unique. Please see below for some examples of those for a Baby girl and Baby boy which should be referred to as information only to honor the tradition adopted in China.

The Correct Order
The order in which names in China are presented is the reverse to those from Western cultures. Traditionally these would therefore be transcribed in the following order: surname, given name.

Chinese Given Names
There are thousands of Chinese characters and the given name originating in China usually consists of two syllables taken from any of the thousands of these Chinese characters. The range of names is therefore almost limitless. These can represent and reflect all forms of nature and the environment or characteristics or even have mystical meanings. Many reflect specific periods in history. The Western custom of naming a baby after the given name of another member of the family would be unheard of in the Chinese culture.
