chinese baby names

Are you looking for an offbeat baby name for your child? How about picking a Chinese name? Just like the years' old Chinese heritage and cultures, even Chinese names symbolize virtue, ancient treasures, and serenity. There’s an extreme diversity in Chinese names due to the different dynasties, religions like Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism and of course, Mandarin and Cantonese dialects.

Chinese names are mainly made up of a few characters. The family name is the first character, followed by the given name. The characters should combine in such a way that it brings prosperity and good luck to the child.

Meanings of names are very significant to the Chinese people. They believe that a good name brings fame and respect to the bearer and a name with bad meaning brings a hard life. Traditional Chinese male names connote prosperity, strength, and characteristics that parents hope their babies to inherit. Baby girl names, on the other hand, skew towards nature, beauty, and grace.
