Need Chinese name for my son

Postby Jen » Wed Mar 10, 2004 4:32 pm

Hello,

I need help with a second character for the Chinese name of my second son.

My first son's Chinese name is: Quong-Yiu, meaning Bright, Brilliant
For my second son we are keeping the first character Quong. We need a good second character to go along with it. His first name is Jacob. If anyone can help with a few different characters to go with this and give me the meanings of them that would be wonderful!

Thank you for your help!
Jen

I think the characters for "Quong Yiu" are 光耀. Why not call the other Gwong Fai, 光輝 which has a similar meaning.

brightness; luster; brilliance; splendor; light; luminosity

Thank you for your suggestion of Quong-Ming, which is a very good one! It is actually my brother's Chinese name.

We have actually chosen Quong-Sing for Jacob's Chinese name. Thank you for your suggestions and for the online chinese dictionary.

Quong means bright and brilliant. Sing means any heavenly body that shines (star, planet).

Regular hong konger will name their kids after consulting the fortune tellers,it may sound superstitious ,some of them believe that the name will affect kid's and the name should match with the the birthday of the child , it's all about the nexus.

There is a SPECIAL METHOD for people like you.

There is this handy little machine called a "Chinese naming device", sometimes called "gun" for short after the Chinese name "gun tu you hei te xiu te an yu ha be keng mei te de si hui zai te" which means "Device for giving a Chinese name to a people".

First, you must point the hole at the end of the gun to your temple. Second, you must squeeze the little lever inside. Third, it will print a little piece of paper out the hole on the end telling you the appropriate Chinese name derived from your brain-scan.

Good luck!

Why not go to china town and give some money to know your son's
ba zhi(八字) and ask him use which char.

e.g. born in summer don't use the char. with 火 like 榮(prosperous)
