With your eyes, of course...

But if you mean what the character means, I don't know. I tried looking in my dictionary for it, but found nothing. Then again, my dictionary is simplified so maybe it's traditional? I think that if you posted where you found it it might help.

well, this character here: 娀 is as close as I have come and it is pronounced song1. It doesn't seem to have a meaning, that I can see anyway, so it is probably a family name. I have never seen it before, so if this is the character you are looking for then my advice is don't worry about it.

After consulting Source1 and Source2 there obviously is to be asked, whether Di Ku wasn´t rather the great grandson of Huang Di.

炎 黄 子 孙 黄帝轩辕氏,姬姓 . 炎帝列山氏,姜姓 .

帝嚳 Di Ku (Emperor Ku, r.2435-2365)

Emperor Ku 高辛氏, also called 高辛 Gao Xin, was great grandson of the Yellow Emperor. The sources given for the three people here are Comprehensive Mirror (通鑑 Tong Jian6) and [古?]琴疏 Gu? Qin Shu. Shi Ji #1 (GSR I, p.5f) discusses Emperor Ku but not 鄒屠氏 Zoutu Shi or 晏龍 Yan Long.
