The number of characters in ones given name varies by generation, historically -- you can choose either as the child is not "bound" to such ancestry regulations. As per your query, Mei Lin (Beatiful Forest) is not a common name as it implies a physical characteristic of the person; this is looked down upon by most Mainland Chinese as being bad luck.
