: Hi, my name is Adam Lee, and in trying to find a chinese name, this is what I have come up with: LiYangDe - Yang2 meaning masculine, positive, bright, etc. and De2 meaning moral, upright. (my father uses the same De in his name) Any input would be greatly appreciated.

If your father's name has the word De then in Chinese tradition you should avoid using it. This is a big different between Chinese and Western name giving practice. In Western cultures it is great honour to give one's name to a child. It is the opposite in Chinese culture.
