    Chinese names are really fascinating, they also work similar to Koreans. Kim, Lee and Park are the most common surnames in Korea.

      Absolutely, although I can't say we are expert Korean speakers there are certainly a number of similarities with how the names are displayed. I think Kim, Lee and Park is similar to Li, Zhang and Wang in Chinese - they are dominant surnames in the language.

    Are any Chinese names like, 5/6 characters?

    Reply
    • Max Hobbs

      No Jemma Chinese names are either 2 or 3 characters in virtually all cases.

      I'm sure there are some exceptions out there, but we've never seen otherwise!

    Chinese names blow my mind so much thought behind them compared to the west where it's just "follow the trends" or celeb choices!

    Thank you! My Chinese professor gives us names based on how our own names are pronounced. Funny enough, he thought I was a girl during our first class, so after I told him, he renamed me 郝国男 to remind himself, haha!

      Hi Roob,

      Yes it can be so hard to decide on a Chinese name!! But 周 海霞 is a great name, it is very 很好听 so we think it's a great choice 😊.

    高富帅 was the name given to me years ago. I didn’t realize what it meant until I actually went to China to study 😂😂

    My chinese name is 陆慈榕. Is it good or bad??

    Reply
    • Katie Coy

      Hi Lea,

      This is a great Chinese name! 慈 means kind and 榕 is a big tree, which in a name refers to growing up strong and quick.

    Is 吳嘉芸 a good female name?

    Reply
    • Katie Coy

      Hi CJ,

      The character 嘉 means good and 芸 is a good character for a female name. Really great choice!

    Hi what do you think of 马雅 or 马雅惠 as a girl's name? (which one do you prefer?) Is there any weird/funny alternative meaning to these characters being used together?

    Reply
    • Max Hobbs

      Hi Grace, thanks for your comment

      We prefer 马雅惠。 马雅 sounds like 妈呀 which in Chinese means "oh my god" 😂

      Hope this helps

        Oh wow! Thanks for that. What about 马惠 over 马雅惠 as a 2-syllable alternative

        Reply
        • Max Hobbs

          No problem!

          How about 马慧 as this sounds like wisdom in Chinese? Something a little different but great connotations in Mandarin.

    hi, is there such a surname called Bibi 比比? If yes, what exactly does it mean? I'm still puzzled by this name 比比东 BiBi Dong

    Reply
    • Max Hobbs

      Hi Anastasia, thanks for your comment

      比比东 comes from a famous novel, TV show and animation called 斗罗大陆.

      It's just a nick name and we don't have a surname like that in Chinese.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi! what do you think of 輕珍 / 輕珠? do they sound and look good for a girl's name? or how about using this qing 清珍 / 清珠? which one will be better?

    Reply
    • Katie Coy

      Hi Cynthia!

      珍珠 means pearl, so perhaps this may be maybe a better name for you? Or if you prefer both 清清 and 珠珠 also sound like really cool names!

    Thank you, this post really helps me creating a name for myself. Interesting that they put so much thought on creating names.

    Also, what do you think about these names: 俊爾德, 俊威儀, and 俊維翰? Are they sound OK for a young male adult? Is 俊 a legitimate surname or should I stick with 楚?

    I am afraid they are a bit outdated since I created them by taking characters from a passage in 詩經 🤣. Also, since its in classical Chinese I am not quite sure about how to combine the characters.

    Thanks once again 😁

      Hi Alden,

      Thank you so much for your comment. It is so impressive that you read 诗经 (詩經)! We suggest that you stick with the surname 楚,and 楚尔德 (楚爾德) is a very cool name. For instance Oscar Wilde is translated 奥斯卡·王尔德 in Chinese.

      Thanks, The LTL Team

    Hi! Do you know if 信心 can be used as a girls name? Is 李信心 an acceptable name or should I use different characters? I really like the xinxin pronounciation so I would like to have that as my name.

    Reply
    • Katie Coy

      Hi Ella! The name 李信心 would sound a little unusual so we would instead recommend one of the following names: 李鑫 李欣 李馨, if you really like the sound of xinxin for all these names you can repeat the xin for example 李欣欣.

      Hope that helps, The LTL Team
