Lock sounds like the word for camel. The character is composed of 'horse' on the left side. Hee is most likely the word for happiness. (Please see my website InCharacter.biz.) I'm not sure about Lin. Because many Chinese words have similar sounds and the same word may sound differently in different dialects, it is hard to tell.
