This is my first post so sorry for any faux pas... my partner and I are expecting our first child, a girl, next year and were hoping for some help choosing her Chinese name. I am white, my boyfriend is Chinese but grew up here in the UK. His Mandarin is somewhat mediocre due to a number of factors, but he really regrets this and wants things to be different for our daughter. Subsequently, we would like her to have a good Chinese name to connect her to her culture. This would go alongside her English name. We did ask his mother too, but apparently her suggestions sound "old" (no idea what that means... I'm not getting involved lol!) He tried looking through poetry and dictionaries and came up with a few things, but what we are really lacking is Native/fluent speakers who can tell us if these names suck 😅 We did also do "LinkedIn checks" on all of these names to see if there are real people using them, but I still want to be sure we are not saddling our child with something terrible. We are also completely open to suggestions if anyone has any as well. His surname is Wong 王 so lucky for us, common and easy to write. So far we have: 路遥 恩霖 霏霏 - apparently this is also the name of a singer? 艾雯 or 莉雯 露涵 - is this too hard to write? I am probably forgetting some... anyway, thank you so much in advance for your feedback/suggestions 😁 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
