What’s in a Name?

Sandra and I have recently chosen some Chinese names. Names are very important in many cultures, China being one of them. Often children are named for the month they were born in or given names relating to important events of the time. Regardless, names hold a great meaning.

Shorel’s name is: ??? or ?n Lì Ti?n. “An” is the surname, meaning “peace”. “Li Tian” is the given name, meaning “Strength” and “Heaven” respectively.

Sandra’s name is: ?? or Míng Huá. “Ming” is the surname, meaning “bright”. “Hua” is the given name, meaning “China”.

Why take a Chinese name? Simply because our English names sound foreign and are difficult to pronounce for Chinese people.

And that’s the rest of the story! ??!
