In general, the norm is that each Chinese name has three characters. The first character is the family name while a remaining couple of characters are the given name of the individual. On certain occasions, people from Mainland China might also have just a single character in their name. While choosing a name for a baby girl the entire responsibility lies with the parents. It is their job to make sure that the name is harmonious and also the characters must combine together in order to bring good luck as well as prosperity to the baby girl.

Picking a Chinese name is not such an easy affair rather there are multiple aspects related to it.

Various girl names are decided by adding characters which include beauty, kindness, elegance, virtues as well as flowers just to name a few.

Customarily all of the Chinese characters have a specific meaning when they are translated into the English language, but the Chinese names cannot be translated so easily. The characters are chosen for their significance and harmony, but the combined characters usually don’t have a meaning.
