In China, the surnames have had an invariable hereditary origin for more than 5 thousand years
according to the father, on the other hand a Chinese child has several years to choose his first name.
With the birth, the parents freely choose a temporary first name, often made up of two ideograms.
It has a precise sense: it often expresses a parental wish, or a good thing, a good morality, heroism, etc.
In the countryside, although the pronunciation of the first name was quite used, almost fixed
in the life of a young child, the final writing, therefore the ideograms constituting the official
first name, is only fixed by the pupil himself at the age of the schooling (around 6 years).
In every human-being it hides a Chinese.
That you are born in China or not, you still have much time to choose yourself your Chinese first name.
While waiting, please satisfy yourself with a phonetic translation of your Latin first name:
your first name is transcribed in Chinese ideograms according to the pronunciation.
Each Chinese ideogram represents a syllable, therefore a sound.

The Fresh Flower... Why not ask your Chinese friend at your surroundings ? he is sure
