Subject: Need help with name
Hello and thank you for the information on Chinese surnames. My husband and
I are adopting a beautiful baby girl from China. We would like to give her
an American first name of, "Sarah" and her middle name of "Song". We like
the word "Song" in English...it has a beautiful meaning. However, I
understand that if we were to give her a second name of "Song" that it would
be obvious to other Chinese that she came from an orphanage. I do not want
to hurt her by doing this.
I am wondering if "Song" could also mean anything else in mandarin or
Cantonese other than referring to the Song dynasty.
Here is my second question...her orphanage name is Sheng Ru Zhuo which is
very beautiful. Can you think of an American name equivalent to that in
Thank you very much for your help.
