The Chinese Name Analysis System
Thinking of a name for your new child can be a tricky task. After all, this will determine how your child is addressed, the pet names he will pick up and the name that will appear on all the important documents.
Under this system, a person's name represents a myriad of things, such as one's closeness with parents (important), intelligence, academic performance and even the child's ability to become recognised in society.
The Chinese saying, '不怕生错命，只怕取错名’, which can be translated to: "We are not afraid of not having a good destiny path but we are worried if our name is not given correctly," reaffirms the understanding that the choice of a name is important.
