About The Chinese Character Name Generator

Names for Chinese characters can present many challenges. Chinese names are always presented surname first, followed by their given name (so someone with the family surname Wei and the given name Zyang would be called Wei Zyang), and given names are often chosen because of particular associations, or if the relevant Chinese written character has an attractive shape. Male names are often strongly associated with power and strength, while female names are usually connected to nature or beauty. Naming a child after a famous person or an older relative is frowned upon, however, as it would mean that younger members of families would end up accidentally breaking Chinese etiquette by using names only associated with their elders.
