Chonese Names
ˇHola! I'd like a Chonese name too, if I may. My last name means "good old man", and my first name means "one" (as in article, not number), but there is a cockup there that I love, as the "one" is feminine. I should be called Hen to be gramatically correkt, but I ain't. What does it sound like in Chinese(s)?

Teuncingly,
Hax

How about Lao-Yi? Chonese children are foften nicked by their birth order, laoyi/laoda (eldest), laoer (second). lao means "old" but in the Merkian sense of a diminutive, cf. "ol'".
As fro the surname: does "good" mean hao (as in Morgilly goond) or sumfink else?

Re: Chonese Names
Lao-Yi sounds gret! As for good, well, kalos means both good and beautiful, so some general epithet of virtue will do. Thanks loads!

Well, AFAIK, mei isn't used as a surname (though lonts of Chonese grils get it as part of theiresse).

I suggest:
wen
("warmth, benevolence")
See this for the pictographic etymology, which I think is cllo.
benevolence: prisoner (human in a box) being offered a plate

So wen laoyi, "benevolent eldest/first" (which is prolly knot a name that belongs to nay epople, but that's goond, wright?)...

Re: Chonese Names
Wen is nice! I looked up http://zhongwen.com/d/166/d209.htm and it also gives "laoren" and "laotou" for "old man" ("geron"), and "laorenjia" for "old person" (in general I guess). I looked up "one" for curiosity's sake and really liked what I saw at http://zhongwen.com/d/164/d64.htm - esp. as the horizon is mentioned, which is the working title of my comic. I'll take it as a good (n)omen, although I'm the last person to pun. :) I also liked http://zhongwen.com/d/189/d229.htm as a possible match source for "kalos", but I have no ide how word/ideogram formation functions in Chinese, so I'll bow to your suggestions. I'd like to come up with a good name like what you have on your homepage below the photo, so I can use it as a signature stamp for prints.

Hugs,
Hax

Re: Chonese Names
My dad gives me to understand that laoyi ("old first") is never used, only laoda ("old eldest"). Ordinal numbers start with younger sibs only.

Sooo...
Let's try
Wen Xianyi

Err... thry again
Let's try:
Wen Laoxian
"laoxian", old (man of) virtue is prolly exlusively male, but "benevolent old man of virtue" sounds aboat wright.
