Why Korean? Well, unique Korean girl names often come with subtle nuances in their meanings. Often, Korean names are made up of two Sino-Korean morphemes, like Chinese names, except in Korean, the first "word" is the surname, while the second is the individual name. 

Each baby is given an individual name to reflect certain characteristics that their parents would like the child to have.
