Identify chinese characters

Recommended Posts


Hi All,

I can't find the unicode or pinyin char for these characters. Could anyone kindly tell me how to write them in unicode and what they mean. The characters are hand written so they don't look too clear. They are probably proper noun.

Thanks a lot.

Looks like 麟旭 to me (lin2 xu4), my dictionary defines 麟 as "female unicorn", and 旭 as "dawn, rising sun". So I am assuming this is a name.

The combination of these characters is extremely rare - 23 results in total on google. And from the results I can see the usage is indeed for names.
