Chinese people always think that it’s great important to choose a good Girl’s names. Because the old saying goes, have a good name, have a good fate. In Chinese earliest dictionary, it was explained as follows: name contained the invisible fate. Fate was intangible and negative, it coincided with ‘the hidden material’, on which the Western scientists are working hard to find out. With concrete form and meaning, name belonged to the positive symbol of characters. For every specific person, it functioned far more than just a code.

More and more people feel that Chinese is really an old language riching with social traditions and cultural etiquette. In Chinese, the family name is always the first part of a person’s name, followed by their given name. Historically, given names are chosen based on several factors such as pleasing sounds and tonal qualities, bearing positive connotations or the actual Chinese character having a beautiful shape.

A key word for a Chinese Girl’s name is “culture”. Because the name excluding the family name which is composed by one or two character, seldom more than two characters, parents or grandparents always want it be significant. A good name of the girl is thought to be from Chinese phrases, idioms, classical or the wisdom of the ancients, having an approval meaning, and not having the same or similar sound to some undesirable or ominous words, and in another word, with a higher standard, to be pronounced in rhythmic. So every Chinese Girl’s name has a literal or suggestive meaning. It is impossible for everyone to give good meaning of each name, so Chinese phrases are suggested by the word of each name and more Chinese characters or idioms are available.
