208 pag. paperback 15 x 21 cm
Unlike names in many other languages, Chinese names are made up of individual characters put together.Each Chinese character has a meaning of its own; therefore, to select a good Chinese name for a newborn baby is more difficult than choosing one from a stock of names like Robert, James, June or Mary. The author of this book aims at helping English-speakers select good Chinese names for their children and themselves by providing them with various methods of naming.
