Reasons to choose Chinese names for a baby
When we talk about Chinese names, we must consider that there are many dialects, although the most normal is to refer to Mandarin Chinese. And it is the second most spoken language worldwide, after English. These are the main features of Chinese names:
- They are very short names.
- They can be composed of two words. This can be confusing for us, as sometimes we will not know if there is a middle name, or if it is a surname.
- The meanings of Chinese names are usually related to beauty, joy or elements of Nature. Usually with a good meaning.
- The names in this list have been Latinized; otherwise, we would not be able to read them unless we knew the original language.
