In Reply to: My Chinese Child's Name meaning posted by Lorie Keller on September 24, 2000 at 19:55:26:
Chinese words have many homonyms (words that sound alike but have different meanings). The important thing to do is to have the name written down in Chinese characters, and find out which one is the surname (typcially the first character in current mainland Chinese names). Only with that can the meaning of the characters be intepreted.
